Sugared Nuts

Sugared Nuts

¼ cup evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon
2 Tbls. water
¼ tsp. vanilla
3 ½ cups nuts (Walnuts, pecans, Almonds ect)

Place the first five ingredients into a heavy sauce pan. Over medium-high heat stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour in nuts and mix, stir continually until syrup becomes completely sugared over the nuts.

My family used to make this when I was a girl. As an adult I often wanted to make them but didn't have the recipe. A friend made them to serve at an open house for her son who was going on a mission. Well I got the recipe Yeah!!!

These are as good as what you buy at the fair.
