Happy Holidays !!! My 18th recipe, “Candied Walnuts”, an extremely quick, easy and a healthy snack, perfect for the holidays. Walnut is nature’s cute little health supplement. It would pack you up with the much needed Omega -3 Fatty acid. Research suggests that Omega 3 fatty acid has several health benefits. They are also so crunchy and delicious, that you would keep munching on these all day without any guilt. In case you have any leftovers (which you will not have for sure), you can use them to top off your salads, for a nice crunch.
- Walnuts (Broken/Halves) - 1 Cup
- Sugar - 1/2 Cup
- Butter - 1 Tbsp
- Vanilla essence - 1/4 tsp
- Add all the ingredients mentioned to a pan and heat in medium flame.
- The sugar would start melting slowly and coat the walnuts. Once all the sugar is melted and covered the walnuts, switch off the flame. Take care not to burn to sugar or walnuts.
- Transfer the walnuts onto a sheet pan and spread them out using a fork.
- Let them cool nicely and enjoy.
- You can use the same recipe on any other nut as well, like pecans, cashews, etc.
