Very easy to make! I was looking for a more flavorful roll to bring to fiesta pot luck, so the second batch I added honey & a tiny bit of red pepper. I also brushed the tops with the honey before sugaring-very tasy:)

  6. With a pair of scissors, make 3/4 inch cuts about 1 inch apart in the strips.
