Easy Candied Nuts

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
2 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup Karo® Light or Dark or with Real Brown Sugar Corn Syrup
1 pound shelled mixed nuts (about 4 cups)

Begin heating oven to 325°F. Place butter in 15-1/2 x 10-1/2 x 1-inch jelly roll pan and place in oven until melted. Remove pan from oven and set aside.

Beat egg whites and salt in medium bowl with mixer at medium speed until foamy. Add sugar and beat until soft peaks form. Beat in Karo®. Stir in nuts, coating well. Pour mixture into prepared pan; spread in a single layer.

Bake 10 minutes. Stir nuts thoroughly. Return nuts to oven to bake 10 minutes longer; stir and bake 10 minutes more. Remove from oven. Stir for 5 minutes to break up nuts and cool slightly.

Continue stirring and breaking up nuts until lukewarm, 15 to 20 minutes. When cool enough to handle, separate into small pieces; cool completely.

Store in an airtight container.
