The directions say to add "walnut halves" in the skillet, but the ingredients do not list "walnut halves." So how many/much "walnut halves" are in this recipe?

Made this with granddaughter and made cupcakes instead used the spray in 1 tin and then papers for the other - both turned out awesome and the paper ones made it very easy for transport.
