Bake for 10 minutes and then remove the pan from the oven. Stir the nuts with a stiff spatula; then spread them again to continue baking. Return the pan to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven. If there is syrup around the edges, stir it one more time into the nuts. Then let the nuts cool on the parchment paper. When they have cooled completely, break the nut clusters apart and place them on a plate. The nuts will become crunchier as they dry.
