This is a bit of a "non recipe" you can spice up as you wish.  Add a tablespoon of cinnamon for a bit more taste or leave out the extra raw sugar and add half a teaspoon of chilli flakes, half a teaspoon of cumin seeds and 2 teaspoons of cayene pepper for a sweet and savoury snack.

The nuts don't have to be pre-toasted, but it would add to the flavour.

I made these to use up the extra egg whites from the chocolate chestnut cheesecake. I baked them with the sable base, then put them on top instead of the toffee nuts: //www.recipecommunity.com.au/desserts-sweets-recipes/chocolate-chestnut-cheesecake/26264
