100 g shelled walnut halves
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp honey
Spread the walnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Toast the nuts at 175 °C for about 4 - 5 minutes, or until they are lightly coloured.
Meanwhile, warm a small skillet on medium heat. As soon as the walnuts are sufficiently toasted, take them out of the oven and add to the hot skillet. Add the sugar and let it melt slowly. Lower the heat, add the honey and mix rapidly, just enough to evenly coat all the walnuts with the sugar and honey mixture.
Be careful not to burn the mixture.
Pour the hot mixture on a parchment paper to cool, separating the walnuts apart. When cool, break the glaze-covered walnuts apart or coarsely chop them and serve sprinkled on top of ice cream, desserts or fruit salads.
Whole glazed walnuts may be served as a snack or candy or used to garnish cakes, desserts and fruit salads. Store the walnuts in an airtight jar.
