Simple, sweet and nutty! This is a great option to make for entertaining or while preparing to snuggle up on the couch to watch a movie. You could even pack these to go to the movies 😉 … either way they only take 25 minutes to make (15 of those minutes to cool).
While planning our New Year’s Eve celebration, I brainstormed menu options for ourselves and our friends (dreaming of food, really)… I decided I wanted a “pretty” cheeseboard with tons of flavor. Usually I stick to the basics: meat, cheese, berries, sometimes olives. With my quest to add more flavors, I realized my baked rosemary brie would pair deliciously with some candied walnuts! Just to liven up the flavor palate.
Well, coincidentally, I just purchased this Lakanto Maple Syrup (I went on a bit of a Lakanto-craze… truly worth it). This brand of keto-friendly maple syrup is my favorite because the consistency and flavor matches that of pure maple syrup. The only warning I have about this, is that these candied walnuts do not crystallize or get rock-hard like regular candied walnuts. This treat is better eaten after it’s made and not saved for later. This is because we’re not using a hardening ingredient (sugar, honey, etc.). Just as well, it’s completely delicious and healthier for you!
