Honey Roasted Moroccan Spiced Cashews

The first time I made these I burned them to a crisp.  It was quite a disappointment.  But then, try number two!  And you can see they turned out much better.

My dad and I both liked these.  I have a lot of Moroccan mix left so I need to figure out what I am going to make with it.  I am thinking chicken or something along those lines.
