I love sugared walnuts in my salads, so when I found out you could do them in the microwave in about five minutes, I had to pass the info. on.
2 cups walnuts
1 cup brown sugar
1 T water
Mix it together and set your microwave on high for 5 minutes. Be sure to stir after each minute. The concoction is going to look liquidy first, then thicken up, finally it will have crystals and look like the sugared walnuts you get in a restaurant.
Spray a sheet of aluminum foil with Pam and spread the walnuts on it to cool.
voila! good enough to make a salad more like dessert. 🙂
