      I made up a batch to bring to my sisters. Everyone dove in and loved the idea of the different nuts. It was delicious, and I got many rave reviews from the peanut gallery :) This will be made again, and I am thinking of making it for Christmas gifts in my edible baskets that I make up each year! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Wicked Cook! Made for Newest Zaar Stars Tag Game 3/09 Linda
