"<p>I had no cashew or pecans, but I had almonds. I put them in a plastic bag and I coarse crushed them with a rolling pin. I had no cayenne pepper, but I had chilli pepper and red pepper flakes. I melted dark chocolate and added my spices to the crushed almonds that I toasted in an iron skillet. I blended the nuts with the melted chocolate, spread it out on wax lined freezer paper to let it cool. I cracked coarse sea salt on top and let it set up.</p><p>I broke it into misshapen pieces....and it was wonderful. It's a big hit and I will certainly make this recipe again!</p>"

"Very tasty. I used a combination of semi-sweet and milk chocolate morsels instead of the candy coating. I had no cashews but pleanty of pecans so used them. Quite spicy and sweet. Thanks!"
