Because Life Should Be Delicious

Spicy Walnuts

Ingredients:

1 cup of walnut halves

1/2 cup of sugar

1/4 cup of water

1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt

A dash of ground red pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the walnuts on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly brown.

In a saucepan over medium heat add the sugar, water, cinnamon and ground pepper. Place a candy thermometer in the pan and allow the ingredients to melt. DO NOT STIR until it reaches 238 degrees. This will take about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately stir in the walnuts.

Lightly spray the cooled baking sheet with non-stick spray. Spoon the walnut mixture onto it.

After the walnut mix has cooled you can serve whole or crush them into small pieces and place in a serving dish.
