This sounds good, although the recipe I've used for years (Epicurious) uses a lot more butter (3 sticks, which I may try to reduce), 2/3 cup of honey and a lemon and an orange halved and simmered with the syrup mixture, as well as 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves and 1 teaspoon cardamom in the nut mixture. After the syrup is cooked, the recipe calls for adding 1/4 cup of rose water. Middle Eastern stores carry rose water as do some gourmet markets. This version tastes totally authentic and gets rave reviews.
In the future I will use the tip of not cutting all the way through prior to adding the syrup.
