      The minute I saw these posted I had to try them, especially since I was really jetlagged and had to occupy myself with something constructive at 4 in the morning. I made these with a mix of walnuts, whole almonds and pecans. WOW (caps intended)!!! The mix of spicy and sweet is addictive. I'm going to make a batch just to chop them up and mix into vanilla ice cream, it should be mind-blowing! Ginny, I'm so glad I got you hooked on spiced nuts, just so you could find this one for me! A thousand thanks!

      5 stars x 1000. OMG these are simply AWESOME!!!! My husband and I used to take a road trip every season to see a minor league hockey team in Huntsville AL. They served a sugar-spiced walnut at the games and we would buy several bags and bring them home because they were so good. I have not found them anywhere else, and that team no longer exists, so we have really been missing those nuts, until now! These are pretty darn close and have become our favorite nuts. Ginny, your instructions are first rate. The recipe was very easy to follow and the results were just perfect. I have only tried a few times in the past to make spiced nut with very poor results(TRASH CAN). Your step by step instructions made it so easy. I also tried this with pecan halves. Just delicious. Only change with the pecans, I added 1/8 tsp more salt, as I have found fresh pecans to need a little more salt. Thanks so very much for posting this recipe.

      YUMMY!!! Oh my goodness, these nuts were so delicious. I made a double batch and the were demolished during the Thanksgiving holidays. The sugar-spice taste is to die for. I printed off copies of the recipe and gave them out to everyone. We think this is a winner. Thanks.
