You can top anything from a salad to ice cream with these or just eat them as is. These I made for Heathers Sweet Potato Roasted Whole Sweet Potatoes With Maple Ginger Topping. Check it out it's yummy!
- In a heavy bottom pan heat to medium high heat.
- Place nuts and butter, when butter is melted and nuts are coated with the butter sprinkle sugar and cinnamon if wanted over nuts stirring till carmelized.
- Pour out on parchment paper separate nuts and cool.
These are great for a quick sugar hit to a weeknight salad, since it doesn't involve a lot of time or advance preparation. I served them in a salad with brie and apples - yum. I used brown sugar and cinnamon.
These were good but not sweet enough. I added some brown sugar to sweeten it up some and they were still in need of some sugar. These nuts have a lot of potential!
I'm very pleased with this recipe. I've always kind of passed over recipes calling for these thinking it would be rather difficult to get a good result. Easy and wonderful. I used them in a salad Just Like Dewey's Candied Walnut and Grape Salad and they and the salad were delicious. One slight change I will make when I do them again is to add a tiny bit of salt.
