Fall Spiced Walnuts

     I love spiced nuts.  There is something about the slightly sweet, slightly spicy crunchy nuts that make the irresistible.  I was making the gingerbread skillet roll and thought it would be fun to use a similar mix of flavors on some walnuts for a fall salad.

     These nuts are so easy to make.  Just a few spices, a little sugar and some nuts, a few stirs and there you have it!  You won't be able to stop eating them.  They are perfect for snacking, great for salad topping or would make a great garnish for a dessert.  Let your imagination and taste buds be your guide!

Fall Spiced Walnuts


2 cups walnuts
1/2 cups sugar
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 1/2 T water.

  1. Preheat oven to 200 F and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together sugar and spices.  Mix in water to make a wet sandy type mixture.
  3. Stir in walnuts until well coated.
  4. Spread out on the foil lined baking sheet and bake for an hour, stirring every 20 minutes.  Make sure they are spread out and allow them to cool completely.
  5. Store in an airtight container. 


  1. I love spiced nuts too and these look wonderful.

  2. I'm loving how you added spices to the usual candied walnuts. Spices add such wonderfulness. :) There's just something about slightly sweet, slightly spicy crunchy nuts that's irresistible! :)

    1. I love them too. They are great on their own and find their way into so many other things too!
