Fortune nuts filled with holiday wishes are a cinch to make. Carefully break walnuts in half by running a knife along the nut's natural seam. Remove the meat with a nutpick. Print out fortunes (get creative!) on colored paper, cut into strips, and curl around a pencil. Then place them inside the nuts and tie matching halves together with kitchen twine.
