Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.

Thanks for your ratings and reviews everyone! Just for some additional info/help, these are not glazed walnuts -- they are supposed to be sort of crystalized. I think adding another cup or so of nuts would be a great way to use up the excess sugar mixture, and using all zest and no extract is another good idea for a subtler taste. Thank you for trying these out; I'm glad you've enjoyed them!

Another "different" treat. Was easy to make and very well received at our holiday party. Had requests for recipe which is always a good sign.
