I was one of the lucky recipients of these wonderful treats! They are definately yummy!
These were yummy. I wasn't sure they were 'sugary' once coated, but as they cooled they had that 'sugary' look. I think next time I will pour them out on foil - they stuck somewhat to the wax paper. Once I get some more walnuts cracked I want to make some more.
These nuts turned out fantastic! Completely addictive. I followed the recipe exactly and had no problems with it. I did recruit a family member to help me separate the nuts once they were fully coated. They really set up quickly.
Fabulous recipe! I was able to easily add as much as 3 cups of walnuts, and they came out great! I doubled the recipe and mused 6 cups of walnuts, using my 6-quart sauce pan. You have to move quickly, because it can become unwieldy, but they were still beautiful and broke apart easily with a fork. These are addictive! Adding this note: The name should be changed to "Penuche Walnuts". I found out the hard way that "Panocha" has a double meaning in Spanish when I gave a labeled tin of them to my nephew, whose father is Mexican. He bust out laughing and told me that panocha means the rude "P" word in Spanish. Run a Google Translate or check out Urban Dictionary to verify. Panocha is a common spelling for a sweet sugary treat, but you will get laughs and snickers if you spell it this way in California, Arizona, New Mexico, etc. Just thought you might want to know.
Wow! I made these for christmas, guess I forgot to review them. I made these for gift baskets, along with cookies and other candy. They were very good and definitely addictive. Thanks for the recipe.
These are very good. Will be making more as I have lots of walnuts from my tree this year. I poured them out on wax paper as sugested and they didn't stick.
eBeth - Thank you for your input - I'm sorry you had some trouble with the recipe. I've updated the instructions to make them clearer. Sticking to the waxed paper or foil shouldn't be a problem now. I realized my first instructions didn't really say to keep stirring after the nuts were coated, but that is essential. Then they won't be sticky at all, they'll get a "sugary" look to them, and they WILL be clumped together in little clusters. If you like them that way, stop there, otherwise separate them as stated in the recipe.
