How To Make

  • 1
    Preheat over to 350. Butter 2 large baking sheets. Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a large skillet. Add brown sugar, water, salt ansd spices. Stir until sugar desolves. Add nuts to sugar mixture and cook until syrup thickly coats nuts, stirring frequently, about 5 minues. Transfer nuts to a prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden brown. I find that the nuts take longer dedending on your oven. Just keep checking on them. Addictive!!
