These are tasty! I almost didn't put in the full amount of cayenne because I don't like things very spicy, but I stuck with the entire teaspoon and am very glad I did... there really isn't much heat to these, but 1 teaspoon was perfect. I used cashews instead of mixed nuts, personal preference. These nuts actually have a barbecued flavor... makes sense when you look at the ingredients I guess. The one thing I didn't like about this recipe is that the nuts turn out very grainy because of the sugar... I'd be more inclined to make these again if I maybe either added a little water so some of the sugar would dissolve... or maybe even try an egg white to coat the nuts first like I do for my cinnamon spiced almonds that I make. Overall this is a great and tasty recipe... if I can figure out how to make the sugar part less grainy, this would definitely be a 5-star recipe!
