2Lightly coat a 9x9x2-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spread nut mixture in a thin layer in prepared pan. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until nuts appear dry, stirring once halfway through baking. Spread nut mixture on a piece of foil coated with nonstick cooking spray. Separate nut mixture into individual pieces or small clusters; cool completely. Set aside.
