For those who like an added crunch on their salad, make these nuts ahead of time to sprinkle on Grilled Chicken Mandarin Salad or another one of your favorite salads.

Remember, melted sugar is hotter than deep fat. Remove the pan from the heat just as the sugar melts and begins to darken, as it burns very easily.

Double the recipe so there is lots to nibble on while enjoying a glass of wine.
