Cook's Tips:

Raw nuts give you a crunchy exterior and a softer inside. If you don’t have raw nuts, you can use roasted nuts, but they will be a bit crunchier.

If the nuts reach the edge of the Electric Pop & Stir or clump too much, use a rubber spatula to push them back to the center of the plate.

To turn this into a candied nut snack mix, allow the candied nuts to cool completely. Then combine them with these ingredients in a bowl: ½ cup (125 mL) each cheerios, dried cherries, white chocolate chips. Great for holiday gifts!
