I recently made a ton of nutty treats, and I was thinking that my fellow Craftsters would adore some of these links and ideas.  These Nutty Treats would make great gifts, especially for those guys. (I always have a hard time thinking of homemade guy gifts.)  Plus, they are easy to make.  Enjoy!



Crockpot Sugared Walnuts aka My Daughter's Fave Walnuts: recipe link, substituted walnuts for pecans & substituted cardamon for cloves

Peanut Brittle Bites: brittle cut into bite-sized pieces...recipe link

Chinese Five Spice Pecans: recipe link: added a bit more syrup

Cloud Candy: aka Divinity...with pecans recipe link

Pumpkin Spiced Almonds: recipe link, I suggest less cooking time so doesn't get too browned

Hot & Spicy Peanuts: recipe link, spicy...YUM!


Last, but not least...Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios Bars: recipe link

My dad used to make Divinity Pinwheels. He would boil down the sugars and make the divinity. Pour it out on a counter "floured with powder sugar. Roll it out relatively even and then spread creamy peanut butter on it. Then he rolled it up to make the pinwheel. He sliced it and then watched it disappear.

Thank you for sharing your yummies! Someone is in for some tasty treats! Cheesy
