A great sweet snack or a garnish for a dessert, sugared walnuts are easy to make and take about 15 minutes from start to finish. I always have a sugared or savory spiced nut for the Holidays and they are great as an addition to a gift basket.
Combine 4 ounces of superfine sugar or caster sugar as it is sometimes called and 2 tablespoons of water in a heavy pot. Dissolve sugar over low heat, then raise the heat and boil until the syrup is just beginning to turn golden. Careful, as it turns dark quickly and will burn. Remove from heat and stir in the walnuts and 2 tablespoons of superfine sugar. Pour out quickly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread walnuts out into a single layer. Let set. Store in a container for up to a week.
