These nuts make a fantastic appetizer at a holiday gathering, especially on Christmas Eve. Or package them into glass jars to give as gifts. I like to use the wide-mouth pint-size jars. This recipe also works with other nuts such as pecans. I usually make a few batches of candied walnuts and candied pecans. Sometimes I omit the cinnamon and they are still just as delicious. Watch them carefully so they don't burn. You may need to adjust your oven temp. My kids gobble these up as they cool; it's a wonder I actually ever have any left to give as gifts!
