READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Vseward Chef-V

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:)
