Cinnamon Walnuts Recipe

Sampling just one of these taste-bud tempters almost always leads to another. That's why I package a big batch in gift tins for happy holiday snackers.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups walnut halves

Directions

  • 1. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, milk, cinnamon and salt. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 238° (soft-ball stage). Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla and walnuts. Spread onto waxed paper to harden. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Yield: about 1 pound.
