I found a bunch of walnuts hiding in the back of our freezer and they needed to be cooked some way to make them taste decent. Time to try a new recipe. The original recipe is by Susan Sisson on All Recipes.com The only change I made was to add a pinch of salt when I mixed the sugar and water. Our microwave also only needed about 6 minutes and 30 seconds instead of 8 minutes. (I did one batch to 8 minutes and the nuts got overdone. They still ate 'em all though.) I just checked as the mixture cooked and stirred it every minute. I had no problem with it sticking because I poured it out onto a silicon mat. They came right off when they cooled. The kids and my husband all loved them. They are not super healthy but I think they'll be a nice treat for the holidays or something like that. And they took less than 10 minutes and 4 ingredients to make. Can't beat that. I think it would work with other nuts too. We'll have to try it.
