Candied Walnuts - you can't eat just one ...

Here's one of my favourite sweet nibbles, just right if you've finished the Quality Street, After Eights, liqueur chocolates and so on.

Ready in 20 minutes plus a little cooling time. Pecan nuts would work well too, and maybe macadamia, but probably not harder nuts like brazils or almonds.

Candied Walnuts
20g butter
20g caster sugar
200g walnut halves
pinch of salt

1  Heat the butter and sugar gently in a medium pan, stirring at times, until the
       butter melts and sugar dissolves.
2  Add the nuts and salt and allow to bubble very gently for 12-15 mins, stirring
       often, until the nuts are well coated and starting to caramelise.
3  Tip onto baking parchment, separate the nuts, and leave to cool.
4  Store in a tin. 


  1. Looks good - though I suspect I'd eat the nuts before they got anywhere near this recipe!
