This is a recipe from the Blue Bayou Restaurant, New Orleans Square, Disneyland. It came from one of the Disney recipe sites, sorry I don't remember which one. I will also post the recipe for the pecans from Boatwrights at Disneyworld, it is slightly different. I have not made this version, I usually do the Boatwrights version which is baked after the sugar mixture is poured over the nuts. They are wonderful to eat as is, or garnish a salad with them.
