Candied Walnuts are so simple to make at home and taste amazing! You’ll love having them on hand to grab for a tasty treat or add them to all kinds of recipes.
I’ve got a thing lately for Candied Walnuts they’re such a great way to top off salads, desserts, and so much more! I love how versatile they are. Oh and don’t forget they’re delicious by the hand full too! I have to hide them to keep them around for very long 🙂
I like to rough chop them a little bit so they’re easier to enjoy and eat when I use them as a garnish. I love the sweet flavor pop plus, the added texture and crunch finishes off so many recipes beautifully! Experiment with them, have fun, and see what your favorite uses are 🙂
