The boiled candied nuts are very good! Easy, quick method.

I had this at Mickey D's this morning. I just had to find a copycat recipe and this is spot on. I even compared it to the label. Thank you.

The walnuts were excellent! This is really delicious and a great healthy alternative. Too bad McD's stopped offering it.

My wife loves the candied walnuts at McDonald's. I have tried several recipes and most are to sweet. This is a great recipe.

I replaced the walnuts with pecans (which I had on hand) and it was still delicious!

The walnuts taste better than McDonald's!! I have suggested this recipe to my friends. I will make this recipe from now on instead of getting it at McDonald's.

I think the walnuts taste even better than the ones from McDonalds. Excellent recipe.

I made this for Zaar Tag. Delicious, refreshing salad--and healthy too! The candied walnuts filled my house with a wonderful aroma as they cooked. They add a nutty sweetness that tastes great with the tartness of the green apples. It even looks pretty once you put it together. Thanks for the recipe!
