Sweet and Spicy Pretzel and Nut Mix

I just received this holiday snack idea from Food52 entered by drbabs. I have many recipes for sweet, spicy and salty nut mixes. This one seems to be another interesting recipe to make during the holidays.
You can use a variety of your favorite nuts for this recipe or make them with only one kind.  The recipe makes 4 cups. I use a combination of 1 C Pecans, 1 C Almonds, 1 C Cashews, 1 C Pistachios.
Here's my adapted version of the recipe.

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
A Sheet Pan lined with Parchment Paper

4 C of Nuts
2 TBS Butter, melted
1/3 C Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Allspice
1 tsp ground Cloves
1 tsp ground Ginger
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 TBS Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
3 TBS Pure Maple Syrup
2 tsp Salt
4 C Pretzel Twists

Spread the nuts in an even layer on the sheet pan.
Bake for 10 minutes.

In a large Mixing Bowl:
Brown Sugar
Cayenne Pepper
Cocoa Powder
Maple Syrup
Whisk well.
Add the warm nuts and stir until they are well coated.

Gently fold them in, to coat well.
Spread the mixture on the sheet pan and return to bake for 12 - 15 minutes. Stir a couple of times during baking.
Remove the pan to a rack and cool completely.

Peace in the Kitchen!
