- 2 Tb unsalted butter
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped
- 1/4 tsp sugar
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
Heat a 10″ skillet over medium heat. Add butter,, once it is melted add walnuts and sprinkle with sugar. Cook over medium heat, between 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently until the nuts become fragrant and start to caramelize. Turn the heat down to low, stir in the maple syrup, cinnamon and salt. Still stirring cook for another 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl.
Tips: Trying substituting the walnuts with pecans…or try using 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/2 cup pecans. When you can always use real maple syrup, you will be so surprised at the taste difference, its fabulous.
Serve over pancakes, waffles and ice cream.
