If you like a little spice in your snacks this recipe is for you. I make this year around for camping and snacking but especially at Christmas for gift giving.

This was a good base recipe for me, but I prefer something with more spice to it. The spices together I found nice, but just not spicy enough, so I upped the Tabasco to 3 teaspoons, the Worcestershire sauce to 4 tablespoons and about 1 teaspoon of red cayenne pepper and I still didn't find it very hot or spicy. But I am definitley going to keep this recipe as a base and just adjust the spices according to my tastes.
