Amaretto Candied Walnuts

Amaretto Candied Walnuts are the perfect way to add a little holiday flair to any dish. The best part? They use only a few ingredients and are so easy to make!

Add these to any of your favorite dishes, or enjoy them on their own!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 12 oz. Walnuts
  • 1/3 stick of Butter
  • 3-4 oz. Amaretto
  • 1/4 c. Brown sugar

Melt the butter in a medium size frying pan, when the butter is melted add in the brown sugar and stir.

Next, add in the Amaretto (you can ignite if you like). Then, add your walnuts and make sure to continuously stir them on medium heat until the sugar has melted and all of the walnuts are coated.

Once the sugar is melted and the walnuts are all evenly coated, place them flat on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper so they can cool down. (When the walnuts are completely cooled, you may have to break them up.)

That’s it! Easy and delicious. Enjoy!
