"These are a must to make for the holidays (or anytime) they are so simple to make! These can be made up to 4 days ahead and store in an airtight container. Can double the recipe. To spice the nuts up add in a pinch of cayenne pepper and about 1/2 teaspoon black pepper in with the sugar and salt, but that is only optional. Make certain to generously spray the baking sheet with cooking spray, I use Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating (Better Than Pam Spray!)"

"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....."
"This recipe was incredibly easy and my hubby will not stay out of them. They are execellent on a spinach salad- Delicious."
"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."
"These were great!! I can't believe no one has rated this yet. Soooo easy. I looked through lots of recipe but boiling and watching... too much work...LOL!! Sooo yummy!! I think next time I will add some cayenne... my kids like spice. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!"
