Tasty treat-Candied Walnuts

I found this recipe in the Organics Cook Bible. They have a little bit of heat from the cayenne pepper which makes them a great snack.

1 cup halved walnuts

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1/8 tsp salt

Place a large skillet over med heat and when hot add walnut mixture. I stir with a wooden spoon till they are evenly coated and browned. Don't overcook! Spread mixture on rimmed baking tray till cool, package and enjoy!

They make a nice salad topper.

You can also mix sour cream with a little brown sugar for a topping for a fruit salad. Top with a few of these broken up nuts...YUM!


  1. I love nuts and eat a few almonds each day. I have never tried any like this. Certainly sounds very good. So glad you dropped by for a visit.

  2. Mary,

    I love all kinds of nuts and these are my favorite! I can't wait to sprinkle them with cayenne pepper and sugar.
    It's going to be hard to wait for them to cool. I'm just saying. :-)


  3. Oh honey, that sounds so delicious! I will try it but I'll have hubs put the cayenne in for me..knowing me, I'd get in my eye!

    Deanna :D

  4. So making these!!! YUM!
    You made them look so good in the bags
    and with the tags!!! xo

  5. These are so delicous Mary! We had a salad tonight with glazed nuts and they make the whole salad. Your recipe is a keeper! rj

  6. Glad I decided to check on the blogs I follow and saw this recipe again. I'm curious with the cayenne pepper if they are super spicy hot? I don't like anything too spicy that burns my tongue.

  7. Yum those look so good! I'll have to make some for salads :)

  8. Becky, just cut back on the cayenne pepper, I don't think they are too hot but I like hot & spicy.

    Thank you all for your comments!
