My Sister-In-Law makes these nuts for the holidays. They are so easy to make and will disappear quick, so make a couple batches, give them as gifts or simply put in a candy dish around the house during the holidays. So Yummy!

well I would never have thought to add sour cream to a cooked coating mixture but it worked, it gave the nuts a very slight tangy flavor, will make again, thanks for sharing V!...Kitten:)

Just finished making these for Thanksgiving. They are absolutely wonderful. I plan on putting them out in little dishes for people to snack on before our big Thanksgiving dinner is serve. Besides snacking, these will be great to sprinkle on a salad to add a nice sweetness and crunch. Great recipe, Chef~V!!!!
