¼ cup water
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
⅛ teaspoon + 2 pinches salt
How To Make 5 Minute Caramel Walnuts
Place a piece of parchment on a
dinner plate (approximately the size of the plate) or any other heat proof plate. Set aside.
Place all ingredients (except two pinches salt) in a medium non-stick skillet.
Place skillet over high heat and
cook (stirring occasionally) for 5
minutes (stirring constantly in
the last minute and reduce heat
to medium during the last
minute), until all moisture
evaporates and the nuts get
darker, glossy and begins to
clump together (refer pictures).
It is important to make sure that
all the liquid is evaporated
before removing from heat.
Immediately transfer nuts
(scraping any remaining caramel
off the pan) on the prepared
parchment. Spread the nuts, so that they are in a single layer and sprinkle 2 pinches salt evenly on top of nuts.
Let cool to room temperature and break apart with your fingers.
Store nuts in a container for several days <– if it lasts that long.
Non stick pan is a must.
You could use a small non-stick skillet, cooking time might take an additional 30-45 seconds
