candied walnuts?

Anyone have any recipes? I'm having a terrible sweet craving (I didn't get these when I was preggo with ds#1) and I have a ton of walnuts in my pantry, buckwheat honey, coarse grain raw suger, about a 1/2 of a bag of carob chips, and a tiny bit (a few drops) of maple syrup. Any ideas?

Re: candied walnuts?

Your ingredients sound DELICIOUS.
Just heat up the sugar in a pan and add the walnuts and stir til coated.

Or maybe pan toast the walnuts while you head the honey in a separate dish.
Stir the toasted walnuts into the honey.

I THINK it should work, but no guarantees

Thanks mama! I'm going to give it a try as soon as I get DS to bed. DH was a real sweetie when he got home from work today he made me some carob brownies w/walnuts, they are cooling right now. I'm still going to try the honey candied walnuts idea though - I might need something sweet tommorow when I'm regreting eating all the brownies tonight .

Yeah- I put these on salads sometimes if I am feeling super-sweet toothed and have the time...I even impressed my MIL!!! burned ones not-so-hot, so just watch em carefully and keep stirring... and enjoy!
