Maple glazed candied Walnuts

© 2020 | | © 2020 |

Candied walnuts are a great addition to salads, soups, breakfast oatmeal, or yoghurt and make a perfect party snack. The use of these sweet nuts is just endless. You can use almonds, pecans, Brazil nuts or any other kind of whole nuts.

  • 250 g Walnuts
  • 50 g Butter
  • 5 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp Molasses
  • A large pinch of salt of your choice (I used black salt)
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Spread out the walnuts on a baking sheet and bake for 5-8 minutes, or until lightly toasted.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, add the butter and stir until melted. Add the maple syrup, molasses, black salt, and stir quickly to combine with the melted butter.
  3. Add the toasted walnuts and toss well in the maple syrup mixture. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent burning, until the walnuts are evenly coated with the mixture.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread out the walnuts onto the prepared baking sheet, breaking up any clumps. Allow the nuts to cool completely before using or storing. They stay fresh for 2 weeks in an airtight container at room temperature. | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

Sweet treats, remind me the caramelised almonds that we prepare in Spain called "garrapiñadas"
Greetings from Spain!

Oh YUM! I have 20 pounds of pecan on order from my New Mexico supplier, due to arrive next week. Looking forward to making these! Might throw in a few walnuts and almonds I have in the pantry as well. Thanks Angie!

I can definitely see many applications for these tasty nuts but then again, eating them as a snack isn’t a bad idea either.
