Candied Walnuts?

  1. I dont know if this is in the right thread, but does anyone know what kind of walnuts mcdonalds uses in the fruit and walnut salad? I love them! Any one know of any other walnuts that taste just as good? Thanks
     
  2. I love those walnuts at McD's..i always ask for extra lol.

    I think they are the Diamond brand but i've never been able to find those exact candied walntus at the store.
     
  3. I have made Candied Walnuts (I am not a baker by any means)

    I had a dinner party, and used them in a salad. They were soo yummy!

    They were pretty easy to make. I don't remember where I got the recipe, but I'm sure you could find one online. I remember that I used my Toaster oven, because I had other things in the other ovens. They turned out beautiful.
     
  4. I doubt this is the same thing, but I've never had the McD ones before, so...

    Mix raw walnuts with brown or white sugar, a bit of salt, and either a bit of melted butter or olive oil, and toast them in the oven until crunchy/browned, but be sure to toss them around a bit so they cook evenly. That's how I make them for my salads! :smile:
     
  5. I make them for gifts for the holidays. English walnuts are what I use, and my recipe is simple--it's the one from a newer Better Homes & Gardens cookbook in the appetizer section. They're great as a snack or in salads!
     
  6. I haven't been to McD for YEARS already...

    I always get candied walnut from Trader Joes or Whole Paychecks for salad.
     
  7. Whole Foods carries some really good bulk candied walnuts as well--love them!
