Sweet Advice
  • This recipe can be used for any type of snack nuts (peanuts, whole almonds, cashews).
  • If the nuts are somewhat sticky and hard to break apart once cooked and cooled then the honey to water ratio was incorrect or they weren’t spread thin enough. They can still be used but it will take more time to separate them.
