Maple Glazed Walnuts & Peanuts

I saw Ellie Krieger make maple glazed walnuts on the Food Network.  Walnuts are incredibly healthy and make a great snack.  This time, I added a cup of peanuts (a) because I had them and (b) I thought it would make it even more fun to eat on our road trip.   Sort of like Cracker Jack but not really.  A salty/sweet masterpiece! 

2 cups walnuts
1 cup peanuts
1/2 cup of maple syrup
Salt: a couple of good pinches

Place the walnuts and peanuts in a skillet and cover with the maple syrup and salt.  Let the nuts toast for 3 to 4 minutes.  Transfer onto a baking sheet and let cool.  The nuts will stick together.  Break them up and eat in bunches.
