I have made some very much like this for more than 40 years, except mine has you sprinkle the nuts over the chocolate at the end. The old recipe says "cook to the color of a brown paper bag", which I find takes about 14 minutes after the sugar mixture starts to boil, and it recommends stirring the whole time (though I may stand back next time!). If you have a ceramic cooktop, cast iron is not recommended. A heavy 3-4 quart anodized saucepan works well. This is a dangerous process because it gets much hotter than boiling water and can cause a fire if you turn your back. For safety, shoo kids and pets out of the kitchen and ignore the phone. Have a pot lid handy to smother flames, though you should never need it. Have all ingredients and equipment lined up before you start.
