Recipe by Toby Jermain

This is my mom's recipe; I don't know where she got it, but she sent them to me in personal 'care packages' for many, many years. They are very quick and easy to make, and they taste delicious.

Best spiced nut recipe on the Zaar. The easiest to make nuts which can be put on fruit salads made with romaine, cantaloupe, green grapes, cranberries , fresh pineapple chunks and poppy seed dressing. Great for a treat to take on trips or vacation. I suggest roasting the nuts in the oven before mixing with syrup to get the maximum flavor.
