  • Easy candied walnut recipe - perfect for snacking, gift giving or topping your favorite dishes and desserts!

    Candied nuts are one of my favorite snacks. While I love to devour a handful of them alone, I also toss them on salads, ice creams and pies. After buying them at Trader Joe’s for years, I decided to stop buying processed and start making them fresh. Not surprisingly, they’re even better! Making candied nuts takes just a few minutes, and they keep well when stored in an air tight container. This recipe makes a large batch, so I share the remaining candied nuts in gift jars.

    I like to add brown sugar in at the last minute for a little extra crunch. I’m off to eat another handful. Have a beautiful weekend and save this recipe for later by pinning below…
