"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Combine sugar, spices, and milk into a heavy saucepan and bring to a gentle boil. Continue to boil on medium heat, stirring until the mixture reaches the hard ball stage. At this point, remove the pan from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Add the walnuts all at once and stir until the entire mixture looks like quite a mess. If all the coating is not used, add a few more nuts until all the liquid is gone. Turn out onto a nonstick cookie sheet and as soon as they are cool enough to handle, separate the nuts. When completely cool, they may be stored in any airtight container.
