Caramel Walnuts


1 cup walnuts

¼ cup + 1 tablespoon golden

brown sugar, both packed (do not use dark brown)

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
