    These are so easy and quick to make. And very yummy! Though I think I used too much salt, they made a great snack, a great way to get rid of leftover walnuts, and a nice treat for my insatiable sweet tooth. Thanks for sharing.

    Just made these and included the chili powder. Yum! They are a little soft, but I'm hoping that they crisp up after completely cooling. I just couldn't wait that long to try them ;) *edit - yes, they get crunchier as they cool and I forgot to add that I didn't have honey so I used agave nectar which worked very well :)

    Certainly easy to make and using Splenda instead of sugar to cover then worked very well indeed. The single thing that I would alter next time would be to trim back the amount of salt. For me, I think that 1/4 tsp of salt would be enough. I ate 4 halves and packed the rest away for later to see how they keep. Plus, I'm thinking that I'll work them into a cake. These will absolutely be on hand for Christmas :D.

    I made the recipe using brown sugar instead of granulated sugar. I combined the salt and sugar and tossed while still in the pan rather than in a bowl. That way, the sugar melted and coated the walnuts very well. Delicious by themselves or on salads.
