How to Make Candied Walnuts
Despite having a mild walnut allergy, I am still a sucker for them. I love the way they dress up an ice cream sundae or the way they crunch when baked inside of desserts like banana bread. Naturally, they are a bitter, almost dirt tasting nut, but I found a good way to jazz them up and make them even tastier.
Have you ever tried candied walnuts? I have tried them on top of rich, luscious desserts and fell in love. Their flavors sort of remind me of pecan-pie but in a portable, easy to eat way. They are perfect for topping oatmeal bowls, parfaits, trail mix, on ice cream, or alone.
Warning, these candied walnuts are super addicting, but oh, so good! The best part? They are so easy to make and you can be enjoying them soon! However, I must note that you must carefully pay attention to your prep and timing! Whenever working with cooked sugar, there is a fine timing line between caramelizing and burning your precious nuts!
