My Mother's Glazed Nuts

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by bPi2240

I'm not sure where my mother got this recipe, but she made a big batch of these for Christmas this past year, and I kept going back to the jar for more! She used pecans for her batch, but I suppose that walnuts or any other kind of nut would work.
