I've just made this recipe and it's scrumpdiddlyumptious!! (Even though my dog ate half the bag of my hazelnuts!!!) I didn't have cayenne but did have cumin. However the next batch I'm making today I'm going to try the Chinese 5 Spice in place of the cumin, as I love that spice, and will also add the cayenne. They are very tasty but not sicky sweet.
