I had a bunch of walnuts in my freezer but needed candied walnuts for a recipe and I stumbled on this recipe. Wow! These are great. And they're actually really easy to make. I was worried about whether or not I'd be able to get to "soft ball" stage without a candy thermometer, but the water test actually worked great (my first time using that!). I used half the cinnamon and added 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper because I'm using these in a salad and I was afraid the cinnamon might be overpowering. They came out great, but I would do the full 2 tsp of cinnamon if I were making these just to eat. HINT: Make sure you roast your walnuts long enough. I took mine out a little too early and my walnuts don't have that nice crunch I was going for, but it doesn't affect the taste. This is a keeper - way cheaper than buying candied walnuts!! Thanks for posting this!
