Maple candied pecans

2 cups pecans
2 T butter, melted
2 T maple syrup
2 t brown sugar
2 dashes chipotle, cayenne or paprika powder
2 drops hot sauce

Mix, spread on pan, sprinkle with kosher or sea salt.   Bake at 375 for 15-20 min.

Now what should you do with your cooled nuts?   Store them in an airtight container.  
Wrap them in a pretty jar for a gift.   Sprinkle on a salad with blue cheese and figs.   Sprinkle on vanilla ice cream.   Or my favorite - just eat them :)
