Servings: 1 cup macadamia nuts

Ingredients

  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment, a silicon mat or a sheet of wax paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, add macadamia nuts and vegetable oil and toss.
  • To a small saucepan, set over medium heat, combine brown sugar, water and maple syrup. Bring to simmer for about a minute, until the sugar has dissolved. Pour the maple syrup mixture over the macadamia nuts, sprinkle with a teaspoon of salt and toss once more. Transfer to the center of the baking sheet and spread out in one even layer. Bake for about 8, until lightly toasted. Sprinkle with remaining black pepper and toss. Bake for an additional 5 minutes. Allow to cool until warm on the baking sheet, breaking them apart with your hands to avoid sticking.
