Easy Candied Toffee Walnuts

These sweet Toffee Walnuts are absolutely delicious and make your house smell delicious as they roast!

I enjoy them by themselves, tossed into a salad, or chopped up on top of ice cream.

I love this easy method of making candied nuts where we toss everything together and it all goes into the oven. 

The outside of the walnuts caramelize and the nuts roast all at the same time.

Fisher Nuts

I am excited to be partnering with Fisher again to bring you more recipes featuring all of our favorite fresh nuts!

Fisher Pecans and Walnuts are the perfect addition to any holiday dish and always help bring new flavor and texture to dishes. 

You can see some of my favorite past nut recipes I have made with Fisher here: Almond Joy Truffles, Pecan Praline Sauce, Walnut Rum Cake, Cranberry Pecan Goat Cheese Truffles, and Pecan Caramel Bars!

This is my 4th year working with Fisher and they are always fresh right out of their shells, preservative free, non-GMO and gluten free.

They come in a really great stand-up bag. It is a big help when you’re baking and your hands are already full to have the bag able to stand on it’s own! 

Fisher’s bags are also resealable. So when you only need a handful of nuts, it keeps them fresher for longer. 

And to make things even easier, Fisher nuts are always available on amazon! Purchase your Fisher nuts today!

I like to add 1 teaspoon cinnamon sometimes to warm my Toffee Walnuts up and give them just a hint of Christmas. I also occasionally will add a pinch of cayenne to make them sweet and spicy! The options are limitless!
