Sweet Hot Nuts

No not THAT kind.  You guys are gross!  Dirty filthy minds, all of you!

This kind:

mmmmmmmmmm. Here's the recipe, but be careful there's about a bazillion calories in every bite.

Sweet Hot Nuts

4-5 cups mixed raw nuts
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon  paprika
1/2 teaspoon  sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine all ingredients except nuts in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Allow mixture to come to a boil, stirring occasionally.  Remove mixture from heat and combine with nuts in a medium mixing bowl.  Toss to coat and spread evenly on a baking pan coated in nonstick cooking spray or parchment paper.  Bake for 25 minutes, tossing occasionally, or until syrup is thickened.  Let cool and ENJOY!
