  1. Heat oven to 350. Mix all syrup ingredients. in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20 min. remove from heat and let stand at room temp.
  2. melt butter and add oil. I leave the milk part of the butter at the bottom and don't use it. (clarified Butter)
  3. put nuts and sugar, cinnamon in a food processor till fine. Set aside. take a wooden dowel ( I got mine from the hardware store, wash it and oil it)

    Bake till golden. let cool completely before pouring syrup on.
    Optional to drizzle with chocolate.....
