Candied Walnuts

A very simple candied nut recipe I found online. Uses just one pan and candies the nuts as they roast. I'm thinking a little cinnamon (or other spices) might be a nice addition, though I haven't tried that yet.


  • 1 ½ cup walnuts (whole or pieces)
  • ¼ cup granulated white sugar
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp butter
  1. Add everything to a non-stick saute pan over medium heat
  2. Stir constantly for ~ 5 minutes until the sugar begins to brown and liquify
  3. Transfer to parchment paper and immediately separate each nut
  4. Cool
