Recipe: Candied Walnuts

Use these pretty candied walnuts as a dessert garnish. Try them on top of a pumpkin cheesecake or your favorite holiday dessert.

2/3 cup, for about 12 servings | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes

1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon water
1/4 teaspoon salt

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil; coat with cooking spray.
Combine sugar, honey, water and salt in a large heavy skillet. Place over medium-high heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture turns golden, 3 to 4 minutes.
