Candied Walnuts

  • 1 1/2 cups walnuts
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

In a very small bowl, combine sea salt, cayenne, and cinnamon.

In a frying pan, lightly roast walnuts over medium heat until they become fragrant – just a few minutes.

Add butter and mix well.

Sprinkle spice mixture over top and mix well.

Add maple syrup and stir well once again until syrup candies (about 30 seconds).

Remove from heat and dump the mixture on a non-stick surface and let cool.
