I'm nuts for these nuts. =)
They are reminiscent of the slightly salty, and very sweet nuts served from a cart on the corner of a busy city street. They are best eaten with chilly fingers and wind-nipped ears.

These have whole, simple ingredients, and are so yummy. But best of all, they are super easy. You can whip them up in just a few minutes, and clean up takes even less time.

I like to use Grade B maple syrup, as it has more of the rich and heavy maple flavor I love. You can use whatever kind of nuts you want. I like a half and half mix of cashews and almonds.

  • Step 1

    Combine all ingredients in a large, nonstick skillet (I recommend cast iron). Turn heat to low, and slowly increase the temperature, stirring occasionally. As the syrup begins to boil, stir constantly.

  • Step 2

    The syrup will begin to caramelize. You'll want to remove the pan from the heat when the moisture has mostly evaporated and the nuts begin to stick to each other.

  • Step 3

    Spread on a sheet of parchment or waxed paper until cool. Store in an airtight container.
