Everyone loves these along with my sugared pecans. These walnuts are a little different, though. It's a different nut for one thing, so that adds a different flavor. I add allspice to these too. They're both great anytime, but especially for the holidays. Hope you like them. Enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We absolutely adored these sugary, sweet, and lightly spiced walnuts. The walnuts are well coated with a delicious crust that pops in your mouth. These are a scrumptious snack and will also add a nice little crunch sprinkled over a salad.
