These are simply delicious. I didn't add the chilli because not everyone likes it, but they were still so more-ish!

I leave out the sugar and they're still absolutely delicious. Have done them many times when I have guests over, varying the spices according to what's in our cupboard. Had lots of compliments as they make a great alternative to crisps and overly-salted bought nuts.
