This recipe belonged to my mother-in-law. Of course I love sweets, so these certainly qualify! It is a sugary snack and candy made into one.

To keep things quick & easy, it would be best to buy your nuts, already shelled. It would take a long time, to do it yourself. So, our prep time, doesn't include time for shelling nuts.
