I've just made this recipe and it's scrumpdiddlyumptious!! (Even though my dog ate half the bag of my hazelnuts!!!) I didn't have cayenne but did have cumin. However the next batch I'm making today I'm going to try the Chinese 5 Spice in place of the cumin, as I love that spice, and will also add the cayenne. They are very tasty but not sicky sweet.

I just made Chef John's Sweet Salty Spicy Nuts after watching his wonderful video! As I starting preparing everything..realized I didn't have any cumin..Ok, so now for different spice! I decided to add a 1/4 tsp. of Chinese 5 Spice. OMG...they are fantastic! (glad I didn't have the cumin) My husband couldn't/wouldn't leave them alone...so much for getting things ready for Xmas! I'm now on my 4th batch...... If you haven't tried these you are definitely missing out ~ you have nothing to lose! thanks to Pattypro for putting up the link for the recipe
