Author Notes

The sweet nutty aroma coming from the street carts in New York City always puts me in a tizz however, I always seem to be in too sensible a mood to ever stop for a bag of the delightful sugary pecans! After munching incessantly on a bowlful of these heavenly treats at a recent dinner (by the way they were the biggest pecans I’ve seen in my life!), I decided to bite the bullet and make some myself.

To change things up, I decided to try walnuts. I loved these so much I threw them through my Arugula Salad that night. It finished the dish off perfectly. —Amelia G

  • Serves 3-4 as a snack
Ingredients

  • 50 grams Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
In This Recipe
Directions
  1. 1. Over a medium heat, add the sugar to a saucepan and stir gently until the sugar begins to melt.
  2. 2. Once it’s melted, add the walnuts and (quickly) stir thoroughly to make sure the nuts are coated. This will only take 2-3 minutes and it will get sticky!
  3. 3. Transfer the walnuts to a sheet of baking parchment and allow them to cool (it wont take long, maybe 5 minutes). Once they’ve cooled, break up the clumps.
