This is a great recipe. I've made them before but added a little cinnamon. They seem to be a favorite with the men.

They burnt. Oh yes, they were crisp and black. However, I salvaged what I could and sure am glad i did because they were niiiice!!! I had to add more nuts and I used walnuts, and maybe next time I'll try the cinnamon suggestion.
