"First made these (and reviewed) in 2011. This NYE I made a big box of mixed cashews and walnuts and they were very popular. Highly recommend these. Make sure you boil the honey and butter for the full 2 minutes; and once you've coated in the sugar and cinnamon stir occasionally to keep nuts separated." - nannylyn

"It's as good as everyone says! I used a boneless chuck roast (3 lb) and cut the ranch dressing in half. I added an additional 1/4 cup water. I cooked it 9 hours.
