      Excellent candy! For me, using a silpat made it quite easy. I just poured the crystallized nuts onto the mat, popped the mat into the oven--let nuts cool on the mat. I slid the cooled nuts off the mat into the bowl of melted chocolate, mixed to coat, then poured the now chocolate covered nuts back onto the mat, and let them cool in the fridge. This time I used whole almonds. I look forward to trying this with other varieties of nuts. Thanks, Mirj!
