Candied Walnuts

Prep Time: 15 mins   Baking Time: 0 mins

My first year of teaching I was given Candied Walnuts as a gift from a family with a recipe attached. They were soooo good & I began making them for everyone & bringing to Christmas parties.

I've since lost the recipe, but I created a new one & they unfortunately are super addicting! But they are a fun & festive treat for a holiday party or a great little pick me up when you just need something sweet!

  • 1 tbsp butter or coconut oil
