Give your sister-in-law a big KISS!!! These are wonderful!!! We prefer Pecans over Walnuts, so that's what I used. I also try to avoid using corn syrup (YUK) as much as possible & I had plenty of honey, so that worked out just fine. I added 2 T. HERSHEY's UNsweetened Cocao to the powdered sugar (1 c.) YUMMY!!! THANKS for sharing!!!
These are always popular with my family and friends. I measure one pound of walnuts but otherwise use all other measurements as written. I love that they are simple and don't contain corn syrup, which is flavorless. The honey adds a nice mellowness to the flavor. I use Bacardi rum but I bet a good vanilla rum would be tasty as well.

I was born in Newfoundland, Canada. I grew up watching my grandmother bake bread and knit. <br>I now live in a friendly little town on the coast of North Carolina. I love to bake, especially bread and desserts. I also love to knit, especially socks, just like my grandmother. I am the co-owner of a yarn shop in our little town. When I'm not working in the shop I am usually at home in the kitchen!
