      I've been trying many nut recipes, in hopes of finding one I can place in jars and give as small gifts during the holidays. This one is the winner! It is pure sweetness and not all spicy, like the others. Thanks for posting!

      These were very easy to make and they were tasty too. The nuts were a little soft after baking but the flavor was great. I will use an old cookie sheet the next time I make these, my pan was really hard to clean. Oh, I used peanuts - my favorite! Thanks Mirj! They were (past tense, all gone now) a tasty treat.

      Delicious -- made as a treat for a business trip hubby was making and he really enjoyed them. Used all walnuts -- but next time will mix it up! Thanks for the recipe! Dianne
