Cook uncovered, moving a wooden spoon across bottom of pan occasionally (but not actually stirring) to 250° F. or until a drop of candy forms a hard ball in cold water.
Off heat, add soda, then nuts and stir just to blend.
Pour into a well-buttered 9"x9"x2" pan; do not scrape pan.
Cool 15 minutes, score in 1" squares and, when hardening but still pliable, turn out on a baking sheet.
Cool to room temperature and cut in 1" squares.
Wrap each piece and store airtight.
