This was very easy to make, but I expected that the candy coating would be a bit harder. The coating was still very soft, even after letting the nuts dry for some time afterward and all the nuts stuck together. I liked the flavor but I'd want the nuts to not stick together as much. I had no problem with them sticking to the baking sheet.

Ya did it again, Kittencal! After checking beaucoup recipes for this simple item, I followed my gut and trusted you. You've got a track record in this kitchen! They are so crispy with thin, crackly puddles of caramelized sugar around each one. Oooh wow! Aside from vouchsafeing them from lurking evil agents, I am wondering how to preserve that texture until I use them tomorrow on a citrus salad. What a shame if they turn soggy! I have plastic-bagged and refrigerated them. We'll see.

I followed the recipe exactly, included red and white pepper along with the sugar, and let them bake close to 10 minutes longer so they became toasted. (Ovens vary, though.)

I use dark corn syrup, often other types of nuts, and then drizzle chocolate on the top. Addictive as all get out.

Very easy. I, too, used brown sugar corn syrup. I added a little cinnamon, cloves and freshly grated nutmeg, too.

Brought these to a party and they were a big hit. I used brown sugar corn syrup instead of light. I don't think they are as good as tyler florence's recipe but these were WAY easier. Thanks!

This was just too easy. Only had dark corn syrup, and they are wonderful. I sprayed a sheet of foil placed on a cookie sheet. When that cooled down enough where the good stuff is sticking to the nuts, I transfered to wax paper and separated. And I'm munching on these as I type this.....

These are great for snacking on or would be a wonderful topper for a salad. I'm not sure what I did wrong because although I did spray my cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray, the nuts were stuck to it and I had to use a knife to scrape them off. Next, time a might try parchment paper. Thanks kitten for this sweet treat!

This recipe was great! I made a double batch today and I did add the cayenne and black pepper. My husband loved them. I will definitely make these again.
