1/2

1
cup butter or margarine

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil. Spread nuts in pan. Bake uncovered 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown. Pour into small bowl; set aside. Set aside pan with foil to use in step 3.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in heavy 2-quart saucepan, cook sugars, butter and water over medium-high heat 4 to 6 minutes, stirring constantly with wooden spoon, until mixture comes to a full boil.
