    Burnt to a crisp after 14 minutes.

    Oh my gosh, these are sooooo good. This recipe is definitely a keeper, and these nuts would be great both as a snack for the afternoon munchies and a party hors d'oeuvre. I found the cooking time of 25 min. to be exactly right; the previous reviewer who complained about them burning after 14 minutes must have an oven with a thermostat problem. It's also important to remember that there's a thin margin of time between toasted nuts and burnt ones, so it's a good idea to keep a close watch on them while they're in the oven.

    These were such a hit at a Indian-themed dinner party I threw for my staff that I gave them each a bag of them as part of their holiday presents last year. Make sure you use the canned cocktail nuts (not raw nuts, as I tried last night -- there is not enough oil to cause the spices to stick properly.) This is a party staple!

    I have made these a couple of times. They are easy and go over well with a crowd.
