Use these pretty candied walnuts as a dessert garnish. Try them on top of a pumpkin cheesecake or your favorite holiday dessert.
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup walnut halves
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil; coat with cooking spray.
- Combine sugar, honey, water and salt in a large heavy skillet. Place over medium-high heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture turns golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Add walnuts, reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring, until deep golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes more. Turn the mixture out on the prepared baking sheet, spreading in an even layer. When completely cooled, break into clusters.
