Stir until well coated. Place macadamia mixture on one side of prepared tray. Place pistachio and cashew mixture on other side.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes to break up mixture. Set aside for 20 minutes to cool. Add pretzels and toss to combine. Store in airtight containers or sealed bags. Divide the mixture into 8 x ½-cup portions (each portion is 2 serves).
