I make these all the time I just use sugar no cayenne. After coating with sugar I lay in a tray and bake at 350F for about 10 mins or so just to roast them a little so they don't have that raw taste. Really really yummy. Read More

Yummy! I made these tonight and added a bit of Cheyenne pepper as others suggested. Be very careful to watch them though. I cooked them what seem like forever and kept stirring and the liquid was not evaporating. I stepped away to get a few things out of the fridge and next thing I know it had all changed over to a solid form. I smelled a few nuts starting to burn so quickly moved the pot off the burner and emptied onto baking pan without any issues. just be careful to watch them I learned my lesson. Read More
