      Made these for my wife's office party. The girls in her office loved them. Even the ones that do not ordinarily eat hot food.

      I am so glad I chose this as one of my Pick Your Chef July 2003 recipes! Sweet and hot, these were delicious! I used 2 teaspoons of hot Hungarian paprika and then used some Cajun seasoning instead of the cayenne, since the paprika was adding enough heat. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

      They were GREAT!! I did deep fry the pecans. Everyone at the office made pigs of themselves.. I did add curry powder to half of the batch. That made an instresting talk for all these southern gals... I will use this again and again...
