These spicy, smoky, sweet nuts are absolutely addicting! The key is to find a great hot smoked paprika. I use one that my friend created from spices imported from Spain. You do not need to get that fancy, but it is the dominant flavor and I recommend good quality paprika! Honestly, these are a little tricky to get the hang of at first, but worth the effort. Sometimes they come out a little sticky, but I don't mind that. You can always add more of the brown sugar/paprika mixture at the end if you want. I kind of like them a little gooey.
And again, any flavor of jelly is delicious. I also love the Ja-Ha in this recipe!
