Glazed in a salty-sweet blend of sesame seeds, honey, and olive oil and roasted until crunchy, the humble beans make a nicely adult, tree-nut and peanut-free alternative to the typical candied nuts.

I tried this recipe and it is terrible! I think there is a temperature error in the recipe. I had to pull the chickpeas out after 25 minutes because they were roasting too quickly. After I added the honey & olive oil, I had to pull them out after 15 minutes--as they were beginning to burn. I had to dump the entire pan. Unless the editor changes the oven temperature in the recipe, I won't be making these again.

I tried making this recipe this evening. It was terrible! Maybe the temperature should be lower, but I had to pull the pan out of the oven after 25 minutes--chickpeas were starting roast too much. Then after putting on the honey & olive oil, I had to pull them out of the oven after 15 minutes. They were completely burned. I first though the 400 degrees was a typo in the magazine, and so I double checked here on the website. Unless I see an editorial change, I won't try these again.
