      Very quick and tasty recipe! I used walnuts and macadamias because that's what I had on hand, and they turned out perfectly. I stopped the microwave about 20 seconds early on Step 5. I will definitely save this recipe for Christmas gifts! Thanks Calee! Made for PAC Fall 2009.

      Oh my goodness and I can only give 5 stars. These taste and smell just like the ones they sell in the mall at Christmas. Fabulous Calee. I made a double batch as I just knew 1 serving was not going to be worth my time. I actually should have quadrupled this recipe for lots of sharing. This one will go into favorites!! Thanks a bunch Calee and for being my such a great photoswap partner. 08'.

      Wow, very yummy,loved the spices, so different than the normal candied nuts, very easy and quick, when I looked at all the ingredients I thought it would take a while,I was a bit scared to let them go in the microwave because I put them on for 8 minutes and they still didn't do any thing because my micro is too old, so in the oven they went, but guess what they still didn't do anything so took them out and cooled them, silly me all the extra work for nothing, they went hard after they cooled, be aware if you make a batch for presents make a batch for yourself because I could not resist piking at them. I am going to do these for Christmas in a few weeks as presents for our staff. The best thing is my kids love them so they are getting great nutrients without them knowing. Thanks for a great recipe.
