Place in a single layer in a roasting pan lined with baking paper.

Bake for approximately 40-45 minutes -mixing them around about 20mins. Keep a close watch on them for the last 10-15mins as some may burn.

Let them cool before eating to obtain their crunchiness.

For best storage keep them in a glass jar and add some rice to the bottom (helps soak up moisture) to keep them crunchy. Be sure to eat within a few days.
