Honeyed walnuts with vanilla and sugar, a walnut candied snack.
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup honey
8 ounces walnuts
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, honey, and salt. Bring to a boil then cook, without stirring, until a small amount of mixture forms a firm ball when dropping in cold water. This will be about 242° on candy thermometer. Remove syrup from heat and stir in walnuts and vanilla. Let cool slightly. Stir until thicken and creamy. Pour out onto parchment paper or foil (see reviews); using 2 forks, separate walnuts. Makes about 1 pound of honeyed walnuts.
