CANDIED WALNUTS WITH BALSAMIC & ROSEMARY

I think I may have found my new favorite snack! These things are truly addictive! Indescribably delicious! Fabulous! Amazing and every other wonderful description you can imagine. Did I mention how much I love these? 

 
 
 
 
INGREDIENTS
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon finely minced fresh rosemary
big pinch salt
2 cups walnuts or pecans (I used a combination of both)
 
In a medium saucepan add all the ingredients EXCEPT the nuts. Over low heat, simmer until the butter is melted and the sugar is completely dissolved. This will take 3-4 minutes. 
 
Remove from the heat and stir in the nuts mixing to make sure they are all coated.
 
Place a sheet of aluminum foil on a baking sheet. Spray lightly with non-stick spray. Spread the nuts evenly over the sheet pan.
 
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15-17 minutes stirring every 5 minutes to prevent them from burning. 
 
Take them out of the oven and transfer them to a sheet of parchment paper. Using forks, break apart the nuts and let them cool. 
 
 
 
 
Originally, I made these to add to a salad. I am so proud of myself for not eating them all before dinner was served.
