Turn ordinary walnuts into a taste sensation with this simple recipe that’s prepared on the stovetop. With plenty of brown sugar and a hint of pepper, the crunchy candied nuts are a nice complement to a fruit and cheese tray. But they can stand on their own, as well, because they’re so munchable!

"I made these to put in a salad and we absolutely loved them. They were so simple to make. I halved the recipe for the first try, but will definitely make the full batch next time. This would make a great kitchen gift. I used cider vinegar and light olive oil rather than the balsamic vinegar and canola oil, and it turned out just fine. Delicious! A keeper recipe!"
