I made these pecans for holiday gifts last year and they were such a big hit, I plan on doing it again this year. After the nuts cooled, I poured them into decorative bags and mixed them with M&Ms to make them look more festive. I find that the cloves are a bit too strong a flavor for my taste. Instead of cloves, I use allspice which has some of the flavor of cloves, but isn't as intense. Also, I know it already says this in the recipe, but it cannot be overstated: Don't let the nuts burn! I recommended turning them 3 or 4 times (instead of 1 or 2). My mom makes a diabetic-friendly version of this recipe where she uses Splenda instead of white sugar. It's not quite as tasty, but is still pretty good.
