    Bev's Note:

    This recipe was sent to me by my #2 son. He says they are so good that it would be a shame not to share them with my Zaar buddies! The recipe only calls for walnuts, pecans and almonds, but if you are feeling a little frisky, add in some cashews and peanuts, too!! Great for serving at a picnic, giving as gifts, or just an anytime - in front of the TV type snack! Hope you enjoy!!

      Yum! I cut the recipe in half and used only almonds. I wanted some serious heat so I used a full tsp of cayenne. It was a perfect blend of sweet and spicy (for me)! Thanks Bev and Son #2 for sharing this great recipe!

      Nice flavor and sweetness. I made these for my LEMON PARTY and got good reviews. I did add more cayenne because I am my friends like more heat. But that doesn't change the recipe. Easy to make and a good solid recipe. Thx, will be making again definitely. Great party snack food

      I didnt think they were going to be spicy enough so I added some chipotle spice. They are some good snaking.
