I just made this with a few modifications to meet my taste. I measured by 1/3 cups because I only had about a cup of nuts. I added 2/3 cup sugar and 1/3 cup brown sugar to 1/3 cup water and added 1 tbs salted butter. When they came out of the oven I lightly salted them while they were still sticky as I enjoy salty-sweet things. Thanks for helping me make something delicious!

These are deadly, can't keep my hands off them!! They did take a little longer than 20 minutes to get good and crisp.

I have been making these for years. They are a lovely addition to Christmas baskets or for a hostess gift. One hint that makes cleanup so much easier...use parchment paper to line the baking pan.
