The duration of the second roasting might change depending on the size or type of chickpeas and your oven. So check and roast longer if the chickpeas are not crunchy as desired. 

Never store crispy chickpeas in airtight containers. Keep them in a bowl or in jars without a lid. Otherwise, they lose their crispness.
