    Very tasty and good for holiday gift giving- followed the recipe exactly except I used whole almonds- easier to eat.

    These nuts are DELICIOUS! I made them for my holiday goody plates this year and they were the perfect addition. Just enough sweetness, spice and heat (I did the red pepper option) and very easy to make. Yum!

    This was so easy and tasty. Next time I will try the red pepper flakes for a spicy change. Just make sure to follow the recipe and turn the nuts half way through cooking to break them apart.

    Delicious glazed nuts! I cut the salt in half, though, because I prefer a sweeter-tasting nut and a full teaspoon of salt is too much. These nuts can also be made using Splenda in place of sugar. They are slightly less crunchy but still very flavorful and delicious, and perfect for my non-sugar-eating family members. Like other reviewers, I have tried subbing walnuts for macadamia nuts and whole almonds for sliced. I recommend sliced because they have a crisper texture when glazed, but the walnut substitution seems fine. Just half almonds and half pecans works well, too. Macadamias are so expensive.

    Very good! Sweet, spicy and easy. Used all whole nuts that I had on hand (almonds, pecans and walnuts). Had them at my Christmas Eve party and had several requests for the recipe. Great snack for me at work - not much added sugar and no added fat. Thanks!

    I have made this 4-5 times, everyone loves it. The cardamom gives the unique test.

    Super easy and delicious. I used garam masala instead of combining the recipe's separate ingredients. Served at a cocktail party and guests loved them.
