"Not your typical roasted almonds, these have a little kick of chili powder and the depth of more cinnamon than most recipes."

I made a third of this recipe to see how I'd like it, and I will make some more. The directions are very easy to follow, and the nuts turn out just like you think--evenly coated with the mixture. You could easily change out the seasonings in the sugar, and I'm thinking I'd like a little cayenne to accompany the flavors next time. Thank you for the recipe!
Way too much sugar! I reduced it to 1/4 white and 1/4 brown and it was still sweet. Maybe it would have been better with more salt too to balance the sugar taste.
These are so good! Barely out of the oven, and I have tasted them a half a dozen times. I did double the batch, along with adding a few pine nuts and hazel nuts. I used 3 egg whites with 3 tsps. of vanilla, along with 3/4 cup of dark brown sugar and white sugar, 1/2 tsp. of salt, 2 tsps. of cinnamon, 2 tsps. of chili powder, and a heaping tsp. of cayenne. Such an easy recipe, and the next time I make this, I will quadruple the amount so there will be enough to share.
My first batch turned out good but not spicy enough. My second batch was sweet and it wasn't until you finished chewing and swallowed before the spicyness hit. They were goooood. I making my third batch now.
If almonds weren't so stinkin expensive I'd make more!!! They are very high in protein and nutritious (or at least in my mind they're nutritious :-)... great snack tho.
I made this recipe for gifts for pastor and a teacher. Pastor's wife told me they were great; their kids enjoyed them too and asked for recipe. I did it exactly as listed. There didn't seem to be much spice though. I think I saw somewhere you can add cayenne pepper? I may try that next time. Linda
This recipe came out great! I used peanuts & almonds and cut both the sugars in half and added a bit more chili powder for more kick though.
Can I add fresh rosemary to make it more savory? Will it burn? Maybe leave out the cinnamon? I had dine almonds like this & vowed I would figure out how to make them at home.
I cut the sugar in half and it worked very well. I will now experiment with different seasoning blends. Excellent homemade gift idea and party snack.
