Tips & Variations

No special items needed.


These nuts are so easy and such a wonderful snack. I used walnut halves instead of pecans, real maple syrup and kosher salt. One tip is to let them cool completely before using a spatula to scrape them off of the parchment paper. I made a batch to take to an event, and everyone loved them. A couple of people even asked for the recipe. I will definitely be making these again.
