"These are good with cocktails"...said cookiedog. I say these are good with anything!!! These are absolutely wonderful. Like other reviewers, I used natural almonds, unblanched. My coating stuck to mine just fine, and the salt and pepper mix was perfect. I'll make this one again! Thanks so much for sharing.
Munch munch munch...I don't think I'll have any left for my orignally intended purpose...off to make more! Made for ZWT5
