These are the best of all the recipes I have tried. A couple tips after the first review that I didn't bother to write. Don't pour the nuts onto a cookie sheet. Use a slotted spoon and leave the extra "sauce" in the pan. Use the times suggested, otherwise you will get burnt nuts, not tasty. You may reduce the amount of butter slightly depending on the nuts you use. I use whatever nuts I have on hand. This is a recipe that is sweet to the tongue, then lets out a long slow heat. A beautiful balance. Hope you will try and enjoy.
