    This is a great recipe but I found that toasting the nuts in the oven as a final step really makes a difference. They turn out crunchy and delicious. I would recommend doing that. They make great gifts and everyone loves them.

    I used Pecans which worked well. Next time I will use 2.5 cups of nuts to use up all of the glaze. Also added a pinch of nutmeg which tasted nice. I spread them out (so they didn't touch one another) on parchment paper and placed them in the fridge. They were still "sticky" after cooling, otherwise I would have given them a 5. Very tasty though!

    I'm nuts about these nuts! Easy to make and so delicious. Wait for them to cool or they will stick to your teeth. The cinnamon and vanilla are clever additions. I made these in a non-stick pan and still had to use some boiling water to remove the last of the syrup.

    These nuts are great. But they are too sticky. Another time I would try to put them in the oven to let them dry a little bit. Thanks Mary. Made for the Babes of ZWT4
