Introduction

I love candied nuts, but they're usually too salty and have way too much sugar. These are a great salt-free, sweet and spicy alternative. I love candied nuts, but they're usually too salty and have way too much sugar. These are a great salt-free, sweet and spicy alternative.

  • Very Good
    A different taste than the candied walnuts that I am familiar that have so much sugar. Thanks for a tastely, more nutritious option. I baked them for the specified 20 minutes at 320 and they were great! - 1/30/10

    I really loved your recipe, however you might want to reduce the baking time by 5 or ten minutes. Mine browned a little to much. It could be a difference in oven temp. though. Good job! - 12/16/08
