Melt butter in a 4 quart glass casserole dish in the microwave.
Stir in the brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and maple syrup.
Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir in the nuts so they are well coated.
Microwave for 4 to 5 additional minutes on high, stirring every minute. Spread cooked nuts out onto parchment or waxed paper to cool.
