- Melt butter in a 9x13 baking pan by placing pan in the oven. Evenly spread coated nuts over melted butter in pan.
- Bake for 30 minutes, stirring and turning nuts about every 8 minutes, or until butter no longer remains in pan. Place hot nuts on foil and allow to cool. May be stored in an airtight container for several weeks.
Oh my...these are soooooooooo good and totally addicting. I used Splenda granulated sugar and added a couple tablespoons of Splenda brown sugar and a teaspoon of cinnamon. It took a little longer whipping it to stiff peaks, but they turned out perfectly. Once you pop one into your mouth you can't stop eating them. I will be making these often in the future.
