“These walnuts are wonderful when put on a green salad. That is if you don't let your family taste them...they might not make it to the salad. Wonderful!”

Maggie!

these walnuts were so delicious! the only alteration i would suggest would be a little less topping (and i mean a little) as well as placing in the oven on 350 for about 15 minutes. If not put in the oven, the nuts taste chewy and raw under the sugar coating. the oven just crisps them a bit to make them even more delicious!

Wonderful and so much less expensive than buying them in the store. Be careful, use an heat proof spatula when stiring.

This is the fastest way ever of making salad glazed nuts. It's definately not the holiday nuts, but that's not needed for for salads. I don't really even measure the sugar to water ratio strictly, and it always turns out fine. The only thing is the time in the microwave. BEWARE: WATCH THE CARMELIZATION because you may end up w/ charred walnuts w/ 8 minutes in your microwave. I find that 4-5 minutes works well with me.
