maple glazed nuts – an edible gift

maple glazed nutsAnother edible gift from yours truly! Maple glazed nuts are super easy to make and a delectable hostess gift.  They’re perfect for casual entertaining or tossed in a salad.  Homemade edible gifts are always well received especially for those who are hard to buy for (i.e. teachers, employers).  Wrap up the maple glazed nuts in a mason jar, tie twine around and attach with one of my free gift tags (set of 9).  Eat the nuts on their own or on top of vanilla ice cream or your favorite yogurt.

4 to 5 cups of mixed nuts (I used pecans, almonds, pumpkin seed)
2/3 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon chipotle powder

Preheat oven to 350f (180c).  In a bowl combine maple syrup, olive oil, sea salt and chipotle powder.  Add nuts and toss to combine.  Scatter over a parchment-lined baking tray and bake in the oven 20 to 25 minutes.   Remove from oven and allow to cool.

The Culinary Chase’s Note:  I used 3 cups of nuts – because that’s all I had (note to self:  next time check the pantry for ingredients).  The nuts are delicious but will be a bit on the sticky side if you use only 3 cups.  Speed up the cooling process by placing the tray in the refrigerator.  Enjoy!
