Candied Walnuts

Candied Walnuts

This delicious little snack is easy to make but difficult to stop eating!

The first time I made this and brought it to a party, it was gone immediately! I first tried this recipe when I spotted it on Allrecipes.com in 2009. I have made it many times since then.

Candied Walnuts
Candied Walnuts

1 pound walnut halves
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
6 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread walnuts in a single layer onto a baking sheet.
Bake uncovered on middle rack for approximately 8 to 10 minutes,

or until the nuts start to turn brown and
the lovely aroma of roasted walnuts fills the kitchen.
While the walnuts are roasting...
On the stove top in a medium saucepan stir together sugar, cinnamon, salt, and milk.

Cook over medium-high heat for 8 minutes,
or until the mixture reaches the soft ball stage of 236 degrees F.
Remove from heat, and immediately stir in vanilla extract.
Now add the roasted walnuts to the mixture in the saucepan and stir to coat well.

Spoon nuts onto waxed paper, and immediately separate nuts with a fork.
Cool completely and store in airtight containers.



  1. I've been saving this recipe in my email (I get notifications of your newest posts) just so I could use these with my black walnuts and give as gifts and they are surely a hit! I make goodie tin for my mother's friends as a gift from her. I made them, they tasted great within the family so I will be making a big batch tomorrow for those tins! Thanks for a great recipe!

    1. YAY! I'm so glad you tried this and liked it as much as I do! What a sweet thing to do for your Mother and her friends! Thank you so much for letting me know that you tried this recipe! I always appreciate that! =D
