Recipe Comments & Reviews

I have made this recipe for years -- I LOVE it, try to give as a gift but it never makes it that far - I just eat them myself.... I found it on the inside of a lb of Land 'o Lakes YEARS ago and kept it ever since. And since I love cardamom, a add a bit more. Either way, these are great.
i like nuts a lot, but this particular recipe is just passable, in my opinion. i think i would like to use another sweetner source than corn syrup.
I found this in an old holiday magazine type book from LOL years ago. It has been my go-to Christmas Eve project ever since.
these nuts were so easy and delicious. i will make them a lot.
