Candied walnuts. These are great snacks, but also amazing to put on salads. It's that time of year when adding dried cranberries, apples, bleu cheese, and nuts to salads are ideal! Here's a simple way to make have fun candied walnuts -
Place about a cup of walnuts, 1/4 c. sugar or brown sugar or maple syrup and a tablespoon of butter into a pan and stir and heat for five minutes over medium heat.
Use these in salads, atop a pie or cookies, in a yogurt parfait, mixed with candied popcorn for movie snacking, in chicken salad... anywhere you'd put walnuts.
