Candied Walnuts

A friend of mine brought these into work and they were just yummy!!! I asked for the recipe and wanted to share it with all of you.


2 tbsp butter

1 lb (about 4.5 cups) Walnuts or Pecan Pieces (any unsalted raw nuts will work)

1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup light corn syrup

Course sea salt or kosher salt (1 or 2 tbsp)

Fresh ground black pepper (1/2 tsp)

Course raw sugar


Preheat oven to 350. Generously grease 15x20x1 baking pan. Mix together butter, nuts, sugar, corn syrup, salt and pepper. Spread in pan. Bake 25 minutes, stir 1 or 2 times. Toss to cool and transfer to foil. Sprinkle generously with raw sugar. Cool. Break apart. Store in an air-tight container at room temperature, will keep about two weeks. Freeze up to three months.
