I love how everything’s a little less structured during the holidays. We get to drop our routines and make time for relaxing or visiting with people we don’t often get to see during the usual flow of life. This recipe from David Lebovitz’s 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘚𝘸𝘦𝘦𝘵 𝘓𝘪𝘧𝘦 𝘪𝘯 𝘗𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘴 comes together really quickly, so you can easily make a batch to give as a small gift or put out if you’re having people over...or just to snack on for yourself! It’s salty, sweet, spicy and sooooo addictive.
Spread the nuts on a baking sheet and roast in a 350°F (180°C) oven for 10 minutes, stirring once for even toasting.
In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, cayenne and maple syrup.
Add the warm nuts and stir until coated.
Mix in the salt and pretzels and stir until coated.
Spread the mixture back on the baking sheet and return to the oven for 12 to 18 minutes, stirring twice during cooking. Remove from oven and cool completely, separating the nuts and pretzels as they cool.
Store (cooled) in an airtight container for up to a week.
