Sweet and Salty Treats Recipes

"They" (whoever -they- are) say that when you crave sweets, you're looking for love. When you crave salt, "they" say you're angry. That being said, I don't have a clue what "they" have to say about us girls (some guys too, I'm sure) that love that sweet and salty combination. Please enjoy these Sweet and Salty Treat Recipes just for you, and me, too.

Please share your thoughts (and special treat) if Sweet and Salty Treats Do "It" for You.

    This is really two recipes. One for the Sugared Nuts and one for the Salted Pecans. You can make them both the same kind of nut (pecans being my favorite) and either put them in the same bowl or sitting side-by-side for the perfect sweet and salty treat.

    I'll admit it. I just can't leave a recipe alone. I've got to "fine-tune" it. The first moment I heard about this candy, I knew it was what we'd be using as teacher gifts. Well, not only was it a hit with the teachers, but visiting family have devoured them. Thanks Betty for the original recipe.

    Be sure to check out the Gourmet Version of this recipe.
