Preheat oven to 350°.
Liberally coat 2 sheet pans with olive oil.
In a small bowl add maple syrup, brown sugar, orange juice, Hungarian hot paprika, 2 Tbsp. minced fresh rosemary and 1 tsp. smoked salt. Whisk together until thoroughly combined.
Add nuts to large bowl and pour over the mixture. Stir until all nuts are completely coated.
Spread in a single layer on the 2 oiled sheet pans.
Bake for 25 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes and 20 minutes.
Remove pans from oven and sprinkle with remaining 2 Tbsp. minced fresh rosemary and 1 tsp. smoked salt and transfer to parchment paper, wax paper or foil.
Let cool completely. Store in airtight container.
If you can’t find smoked salt, you can substitute seasoned salt or just kosher salt
You can also use 1 tsp of cayenne pepper instead of 2 tsp of Hungarian hot paprika
