  • 2 1.2 tablespoon(s) Brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon(s) kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon

2)Line a rimmed baking sheet with a nonstick baking mat or parchment. Spread the sugared nuts in a single layer on the sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, stir the nuts, and continue baking until the nuts smell toasted and the sugar coating is caramelized, about another 15 minutes.

3)Let nuts cool on the pan, spearating them as they cool. When completely cool, transfer them to an airtight container. They'll keep for two weeks.
