Delicious! And I was able to stretch the recipe to 4 cups of walnut halves with no problem. It takes about an hour from start to finish, but the coating needs to set a couple of hours in order for them not to stick together.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine brown sugar, milk, grated orange peel, salt and cinnamon in large saucepan.
  2. Stir to combine. Cook over low heat until candy thermometer registers 236 degrees.
  3. Remove from heat and add nuts and vanilla.
  4. Stir mixture until it begins to look grainy.
