"I am always asked to bring these walnuts whenever we have a get together with family or friends. They are perfect on tables at a bridal or baby shower, and no one can ever figure out how they are made. Very addicting!" — Valerie

vegetable oil for frying
salt to taste
Yum! Very easy, if you don't do the stupid things I did! 1. READ the instructions all the way through. My first inclination was to drain them on paper towels. My first (albeit very very small) batch has tiny paper towel pieces stuck to them. 2. Don't use a SMALL saucepan. That's a good way to start your kitchen on fire (I really really didn't burn anything down, I promise). Other than that, easy recipe, delicious snack!! Thanks!
*** UPDATE - I made these on Sunday and they were fabulous. On Tuesday, I had a few of the leftovers. Not so fabulous! Be sure to make small batches, what you can eat in one or two days. Beyond that, not so great! I guess these won't be part of my Christmas gift baskets this year =(
cooking times drastically off!!!!! cooked on medium heat for maybe 1 minute. better before frying
"Oh my goodness, these are so stinkin good!" I am so happy I came across this recipe today. It makes for a nice little snack. As there are 4 cups of walnuts in a pound, I only used 1 cup walnuts and 1/4 cup sugar. It would be dangerous to have too many of these around! I will remember this recipe for the holidays. Thank you Valerie for sharing your recipe!
These are so very much like a nationally known brand of "Glazed Walnuts", but, without the sesame seeds. Thanks for the posting and the money savings!
These were so easy and so addicting. Instead of frying them, I placed them on a baking sheet and baked at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
these are AWESOME! found recipe to make for this Christmas... EVERYONE loved them! even me and i'm not a walnut fan. made them again for NYE with cayenne sprinkled on it after being fried. simply awesome AND easy!
I'm so glad to have found this recipe, my mom and I used to make them all the time when I was young for the Christmas plates for neighbors, I love these little gems!
Highly recommended!! This reminds me of the walnuts that come with sweet fried shrimps that is my husband's favorite at Chinese restaurant. Figuring out the temperature and how long to keep the nuts in the oil was a bit of challenge but I learned after the first batch. This is a great appetizer and very easy and fast to make. Five stars!
