    It seriously takes about 5 minutes on the stove and 5 minutes to cool. The finished product is delicious! My husband was sampling them right out of the pan. P.S. This recipe can easily be doubled.  It also roasts the nuts at the same time so you don t have to pre-toast them, then add them back to the pan to be coated, blah, blah. Who needs extra steps?
