Boubon Maple Walnuts

1 1/2 C. Walnut Halves

1/4 C. Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup

Preheat a small skillet over medium-high heat. This is important so the syrup caramelizes properly.

When you can feel heat rising from the skillet, add the walnuts, followed by the syrup.

Stir constantly, 5-8 minutes till there is no liquid left in the skillet.

Bourbon Maple Walnuts Toasting

That was fun!  Want to take these nuts on a little adventure?  Stir in a pinch of black pepper or cayenne to the syrup before adding it to the skillet.  Does sea salt caramel make you drool?  Toss a little Kosher salt in the mix.  The only limit is your imagination!
