These were really good as a light appetizer for our Thanksgiving dinner. Be careful not to scorch them though; they seemed slightly undercooked so we cooked them for 5 more minutes and they did scorch a little.

DELICIOUS! I can't stop eating them, and they were popular at a Christmas party too.

Made these yesterday. So delicious! Took a little longer to roast...30 minutes. Each time I stirred them, I sprinkled on some freshly cracked black pepper for more zing. There will be a great hostess gift. Thank you, Angie!

I love these. Fabulous! Addicting! I am bringing them to my sister Michelle's house for Thanksgiving! I have also shared the recipe with others at work as I brought them in for snacking. Everyone loves them. I would just use a little less salt next time. This one is a keeper!
