  1. In a deep, 2-quart, heat-resistant, non-metallic casserole, combine first 7 ingredients (I use a 2 quart Pyrex mixing bowl).

  2. Heat, uncovered, in Microwave Oven 1 1/2 minutes; stir occasionally.

  3. Add 1/2 cup nuts at a time to syrup mixture.

  4. Stir until well coated.

  5. With a slotted spoon lift out nuts; drain extra syrup.

  6. Place nuts in a shallow, 1 1/2-quart, heat-resistant, non-metalic baking dish (I use Corning Ware).

  7. Repeat with remaining nuts.

  8. Heat coated nuts, uncovered, in Microwave Oven 5 minutes or until syrup begins to harden slightly.

  9. Transfer nuts to wax paper and allow to cool and harden.

  10. This is a family favorite and so easy to make.

  11. I always use pecans.

  12. For years I have filled some type of small container and given for gifts.
