Background of Candied Nuts
This recipe was very popular many years ago. It became a staple at our house during the Christmas season. The smell in the house while the nuts were baking was amazing! Everyone could not wait until the yummy candied nuts were ready to sample. I often would make Christmas cookies or Easy Sugar Cookies and would include Candied nuts as a special treat.
Friends and family would always comment how much they loved the Candied Nuts. You can often find vendors in shopping malls selling something similar, but homemade is always so much better!!!
This recipe also is a great addition to various party events like baby showers, birthday parties and Thanksgiving buffets. Mix these nuts in with some candies of the season, like holiday M&Ms or Candy Corn. Make this recipe your own and let it become a new family favorite!
