The flavor is excellent and we really enjoyed these. Sweet, spicy and salty - great combo. They are a bit tricky though - I couldn't "Drop spoonfuls of nuts onto parchment paper" because it was all a bit dry and the nuts, perhaps due to the salty, powdery surface, didn't have the candy all over every piece. I basically spooned out big piles and molded tablespoon sized blobs - pretty tricky because you have to move quickly because the candy starts to harden almost immediately but it's still very hot! Overall, 5 star flavor, but with the difficulty I experienced, I had to knock it down to 4 stars overall. Thanks for sharing :)

Very good and easy to make. A little too much rosemary for me.
