Yummy! I also omitted the cayenne pepper, because I was afraid it would be too spicy. I might try including a dash next time. I added a dash of cumin to add a little smokey flavor. I'm including these with my holiday gifts of sweets and nuts.

Perfect for indulgent munching! I didn't have enough cashews so I used a mixture of cashews and almonds. I also omitted the cayenne pepper because it seemed spicy enough without it. There was quite a bit of the butter-oil mixture left over after frying, which made me feel real good! :-) Thanks, this one was very easy and fun to make.
