      Darris, I think you might be able to do it with maple syrup, it should become candy too. And I cannot recommend Earth Balance, but would recommend coconut oil :)

      You can do it without a thermometer- google or look in Joy of Cooking to see how to test if a candy is at the ‘hard crack’ stage by dropping a bit in ice water :)

    What do you mean by “crispy” Macadamia nuts? Are you supposed to bake them in the oven first? Thanks for the help! I’m a newbie!

    You soak and dehydrate macademia’s? Soak for how long? What about Brazil nuts? These are two we have been eating raw and not making “crispy”.
