Warning: These nuts are highly addictive and may be consumed in excess. Be sure to tuck some away so you have them for salads as well as for snacking and serving to guests. (The nuts keep in the pantry for about three weeks or can be frozen for a few months.) Cayenne gives the nuts a feisty kick, so add more or less as you like. The recipe is a Yummly original created by David Bonom.

    Great, but too much sugar for my taste. Spicemix otherwise was perfect! Will make again with half the sugar.

    I had the pleasure of recipe testing this one as a Yummly employee, and it was one of my favorites. I seriously couldn't stop eating them, and may or may not have hidden them from my partner so I could have them all to myself! :D
