I had just a few minutes to prepare nibbles to go with drinks for Friday night on the front porch. Everyone loved these nuts and wanted the recipe. I didn't have fresh rosemary so just smashed up some dried and worked it in. Thanks so much.
I'm not rating this since I ended up making a few changes, but the end result was good. I am not sure if cayenne pepper is more spicy than the ground red pepper that was called for in the recipe. But that was what I had, so it was what I used. Wow! They were really spicy. So I ended up adding more of the other ingredients & more nuts to try to tone it down some. I was happy with the end result, though dd thought it was still a bit too hot. I think the final product had less red pepper & rosemary in it, & a bit more brown sugar than the original recipe.
Oh my, these were good! I may have browned them a little more than I wanted, but who cares? They were delicious! I made them this morning and ended up eating them with coffee!
