Candied nuts are a Christmas tradition. There are many different nut and seasoning combinations out there, from sweet to spicy to savory. I wanted to use my beautiful farm-fresh California walnuts again, so I made a batch of these lovely coffee-flavored little buggers.
I’m up for anything involving coffee and it adds a great smokiness and richness to these nuts, not to mention a little caffeine. If you enjoy coffee, you’ll love these. They’re super easy – I had all the ingredients already on hand and they only took a total of twenty minutes from start to finish. Crunchy, salty-sweet, coffee-infused snacks in a jiffy…. and they’re just a tad addicting. They’ll keep for weeks and would make another delightful Christmas food-gift for the coffee-lovers in your life. In fact, I just gave a pretty little bag of these to our friends who came over to snowplow our driveway.
