I adapted this recipe to use coconut sugar. I replaced the refined sugar with the same amount of coconut sugar and increased the curry to 1.5 Tablespoons. The mixture slides off of the nuts, but just take them out of the oven often and stir (I did it 3 times at 5-10 minutes each time so that the sugar wouldn't burn). Once they come out of the oven the last time, stir until you can't stir any more. Let them harden, break them apart and ENJOY! They are reeeaaallllllyyyyy GOOD.
