Maple Cinnamon Candied Walnuts

It’s that time of year again! With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, making candied nuts is a given.  Whether it be walnuts, pecans, or almonds, candied nuts are a holiday staple at my house! I think my favorite part about these maple cinnamon candied walnuts is really how easy they are to make, all you need is 4 simple ingredients and 5 minutes to cook them.  The worst part is waiting for them to harden, they are just so tempting and it’s hard not to just eat them all up!

I think that the maple and cinnamon complement the light, nutty flavors of the walnuts.  While honey might be perfect on a roasted almond with it’s deep smoky flavors, maple is perfect for walnuts! I would love to try to combine some other flavors on a batch of candied walnuts like maybe a batch of chai spiced candied walnuts next, I think those would be so tasty but also slightly dangerous to have around because I know I would eat them all up so quickly!
