Candied walnuts are a popular treat at Christmas time, and variation is equally festive and delicious. It can also be made with pecans, cashews, or hazelnuts. This recipe was written by the Healthline Editorial Team: http://www.healthline.com/health-recipes/candied-almonds —Healthline

Followed recipe as written; did not work at all. There is *way* too much water to form a thick enough caramel, and too much of everything for the amount of nuts. I regret using this recipe immensely. I am currently trying to salvage the nuts in the oven, and will be very sad if they all end up ruined because of this
