Candied Nuts

Tonight I made candied walnuts to put on our dinner salad. They are soooo good. I wanted to make candied pecans - but pecans are not affordable right now. Try these - they are addicting!

1/2 cup bourbon
1/2 water
1 cup sugar

Mix on medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a slight boil. Add nuts to coat.

Preheat the oven to 300*. Grease a cookie sheet. With a slotted spoon, take the nuts out of the syrup and place them onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Cool & enjoy!
