Ever have a salad topped with delicious, sugar coated candied walnuts? If you have, high-five. For those of you who haven’t, you’re totally missing out.
Candied walnuts taste like warm bowl of sugary oatmeal. Weird? Maybe. However my fellow oatmeal lover and youngest daughter, Malloree and I came to the same conclusion.
They are perfect crushed over ice cream, mixed into yogurt or layered in a parfait. Or snag a few for a quick sweet treat!
TO Make Candied Walnuts You Will Need:
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- a pinch of kosher salt
- 1 egg white
- 8 ounces walnuts
- olive oil spray, for greasing your pan.
First, in a medium mixing bowl, combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg and a pinch of salt. Whisk to combine.
Next, in a different mixing bowl, whisk an egg white with with a splash of water until frothy.
Add in 8 ounces of walnuts and toss well to coat.
Next, add the coated nuts to the bowl with the sugar. Toss to combine, and until the sugar is all used up and coating the nuts. Spread out evenly onto a sprayed metal baking sheet and bake on the middle rack of your preheated 250° oven for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
See?! So easy and also a little magical.
