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.
Agree with most that a little more sugar or the use of Brown sugar is best. Also the first time I made these, I really didn't measure the butter all that well and found them alittle greasy. The sugar sticks better with not too much butter.
The walnut halves used had been toasted in the oven at 350 degrees for 7 minutes. The recipe was doubled. I broke up my walnuts and added them to the melted butter and then added 1T Splenda and 2T sugar. It was quickly ready and the candied walnuts were at a perfect sweetness for my pear, cambozola starter.
i used twice the amount of walnuts but not twice the amt of sugar and maybe I should have. We still enjoyed as topping on a salad
Very good and easy. I made the recipe exactly as posted, using the smaller amount of sugar as I was using it with a very sweet dessert. Thank you.
made these with the added sugar as reccomended by others (about 1/8 cup) - turned out awesome. thanks
