Chestnuts roasting on an open fire…. just kidding! Not quite time for that but do you know what it IS time for?! Sweet, toasted candied nuts. I love making big batches of these nuts for easy snacking throughout the week or for garnishing large dishes and salads. They’re crunchy, sweet, salty and trust me… it’s hard to stop at just one handful. Enjoy 🙂
