I thought these were very good with the sugar reduced A LOT. 1 Cup sugar for a pound of nuts just seemed like to much to me. I used just a bit less than 1/3 cup sugar and it was more than enough.

I've made this recipe at least 10 times and I absolutely love it! People I've made them for can't get over how good they are! A friend told me they are WAY better than any candied nuts she's bought at stores/festivals, etc. For a pound of nuts, I only use 1/3 C of sugar as I don't believe in using much sugar in anything. They are PLENTY sweet with that amount! I also add a t. of vanilla extract to the wet mix! YUM!!!!! I've never tried walnuts but I am right now...they are currently baking. Will let you all know how it turns out!

Sooo good! I also reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup and they were lightly sweet and perfect for us! Will make them often, specially to add to couple spinach and goat cheese salads that we like from this site, mmmmm!
