Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made these for a party I hosted and they were a huge hit! These nuts are a crowd pleasing change from glazed or plain salted. Everyone asked for the recipe before they left!

This is a great recipe. Can it be made with whole almonds? Thanks

We haven't tried this recipe with whole almonds, but we believe it would work with whole almonds, if you try it please let us know how they turned out. Enjoy!

Oops! We added the ingredients as soon as we saw your note. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Please repeat this recipe - Java Nuts - in a future newsletter. The list of ingredients is missing. Thanks, Jan
