  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a large rimmed baking sheet. Set aside.

  • In a small bowl, mix together melted butter, brown sugar, syrup, cinnamon and cayenne.
  • Drizzle butter mixture over dry snack mixture and toss to coat.
  • Turn out onto prepared baking sheet and bake in 350 degree oven for 15 - 20 minutes. Stir mixture at halfway point.

Notes

When baking, the snacks will look slightly wet at the end of the baking time. That is okay, the snacks will dry and finish crisping as it cools.
