I used whole almonds, too. I roasted them in a small cast iron skillet. The seasonings didn't stick to the almonds. :( There were gobs of yumminess amongst the almonds. I'm not sure how to fix this. Made for Pepper Tag in the Photo Forum 3/12 except I forgot that at the time & don't have a photo.
I roasted whole almonds for a total of 10 minutes, stirring only once at 5 minutes. When I opened the oven at 10 minutes to stir them again, the oven was filled with smoke and I thought my smoke detector would alarm! I immediately removed them from the oven to cool underneath my range hood fan! Much of the pepper was left on the bottom of my pan, and I don't detect any hint of sweetness!
