NBCRightNow.com - Here's the recipe for Chef Brian Hodges' candied walnuts!


4 eggs

1/4 cup water

walnuts, 1/4 pound (shelled & chopped)

1 cup sugar

1) Preheat oven to 325°.

2) Whisk eggs and water together in a large mixing bowl

3) Add walnuts to egg mixture and combine well.  Add 1/2 cup of sugar and combine.

4) Place walnuts through a wire strainer to remove most (not all) of egg mixture.  Add walnuts back to large mixing bowl.

5) Add remaining 1/2 cup sugar and combine.

6) Spread walnuts evenly onto parchment paper and bake for 25-35 minutes.  Rotate the pan about 15 minutes in to ensure even baking.

You can make this recipe your own by adding cinnamon, nutmeg or even pumpkin pie spice to add a little kick!  These nuts go well on a salad, as part of a dessert or to snack on!
