I made these for New Years Eve and they were awesome. I altered the ingredients a lil by using a different flavor of jam. Apricot, and maybe a lil extra cayenne, cause the sweet/hot thing is a wonderful combo. I also used cashews since that's our families nut of choice. Sorry it took so long to review, but was thinking back to good things I had tried and this one was a definite winner. Thanks for a great recipe.
