Next Week's Intervention: I'm Addicted to Sugared Nuts

I think everyone can make the claim that there is one or two things they find impossible to stop eating during the holidays. Whether it's Aunt Carol's sugar cookies or Grandma's meatloaf, I think everyone has their own caloric kryptonite. For me it's a recipe from a lady at Regina's work for Sugared Nuts. These things are great to have around for holiday gatherings (unless you're diabetic or trying to lose weight). The best part is you never have to worry about throwing them out after everyone has gone home. Guests typically leave behind an empty dish.
