A Sweet Treat

I haven’t shared recipes here yet, but I thought this one was worth it. πŸ™‚

This might look gross, but I assure you it is not. πŸ˜‰

These are frosted walnuts. A co-worker several years ago shared this recipe with me, but since I no longer work with her or stay in touch I don’t know who actually deserves credit for creating it. The recipe is so simple and delicious.

Ingredients…

1 pound shelled walnuts

1 1/4 cups sugar

1/2 cup sour cream

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions…

Melt all the ingredients besides the walnuts in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring the liquid to a boil while stirring constantly. Boil for 4-7 minutes. (I usually try 6-7) The original directions say to pour the nuts in a large bowl, then pour the liquid over the nuts and stir gently. I think this just creates another dish to clean and since the frosting cools quickly I prefer to add the nuts right to the saucepan and make sure they are evenly coated before I pour them out onto a greased cookie sheet. Let them cool completely, then break them apart. They should be stored in an airtight container. 

We eat these by the handful, or sprinkled on icecream.
Enjoy!

    Oh my, this sounds so good! The sour cream is a weird ingredient, isn’t it, lol. I’m going to have to make it, thanks! I bet it’s fantastic over ice cream. 😊

    • Yeah, I thought the sour cream was weird too. It gives it a bit of a tang.πŸ˜‰ I made some last night with some strawberry extract and they were really good.😊
