Candied nuts. I love them. They are perfect with a nice refreshing drink and what else, trashy TV.
These are a cinch to make and can be customized many different ways. You can make them spicier or savour-ier just add more red pepper flakes or more paprika. You can also use a totally different combination of spices. Cardamom and pomegranate molasses could be amaze balls.
So begin by mixing all the ingredients in a bowl and stir. I didn’t include exact measurements because everyone will like it a bit different. I tasted the mixture after I stirred and ended up adding more maple syrup and cinnamon. Also, the amounts depend on how many nuts you’re using. You need enough to coat them all in the mixture.
I used this stuff:

As I said before I used more syrup and cinnamon but these ^^^ are pics of the original amounts I used.
I needed more to coat this many nuts:
This is how coated they should be (again you can enlarge the photo by clicking on it):
Once coated, bake in a 350F oven until they are bubbly, or you can smell them, or for 5-10 mins, or until you just can’t take it anymore. That is my new time measurement for cooking. I just cook something until I can’t take it anymore. It’s been working for me. Do not try this at home. Or do. Whatever, it’s your fucking life.
This is what they should look like which is probably the best indicator of when to know they are ready:
Place the nuts in a bowl and enjoy! They taste the best when cool and consumed with a rejuvenating (or intoxicating) beverage.
