Butter Toffee Walnuts
1/3 cup water
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter
2 ½ cups whole shelled walnuts
½ tablespoon sea salt
1. Line a large baking sheet with Reynolds Non-Stick Aluminum Wrap. Set aside
2. In a large frying pan, add water, sugar and butter. On a medium high flame, stir until butter has melted, a few minutes. Continue cooking another few minutes, and then add walnuts.
3. Keep stirring gently until sugar mixture dries out and begins to look bubbly all around, about 6 to 8 minutes. Continue cooking and stirring and the toffee coating becomes a dark golden brown and glossy looking, about another 4 to 6 minutes.
4. Remove frying pan from stove and shake in sea salt evenly over walnuts, stir gently.
5. The walnuts are VERY HOT! Carefully, spread mixture onto your lined baking sheet, spreading the nuts into an even layer. Give a quick extra sprinkle of sea salt over the top.
6. Set aside to cool completely. I put my in the refrigerator for 3 hours. After nuts are completely hardened, break into pieces.
7. ENJOY – Forget potato chips, you can’t eat just one buttered toffee walnut!
