Chef's Notes

Use any type of nut or a combination of your choice, such as walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, whole almonds, sliced almonds, or brazil nuts.


  1. I used all pecans and the stated amount of salt. I did find them on the salty side rather than on the sweet side. I sprinkled the pecans with Swerve powdered sugar to compensate for the saltiness. Next time I will use half of the amount of salt. Thank you for the recipe.
