  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

The Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F

  3. Add walnut halves. Stir to coat. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring, until syrup begins to bubble up and turn a light brown in color.
  4. Remove from heat and drain liquid through a strainer.
  5. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place coated walnuts onto parchment paper in a single layer, separating as much as possible.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes (watch closely so they don’t burn).
  7. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  8. Once cooled, separate walnuts from each other and use to top salad, stir into yogurt or as a tasty snack.
