Her notes:

* These nuts which are "quick and easy" for holiday entertaining
were inspired by a presentation Shirley attended at a cooking schools
convention at the Ritz Carlton. They are basically the same recipe Paula
Murphy uses for candied peanuts; she uses raw, Spanish peanuts instead of
almonds, and she doesn't coat them with chocolate.
