Maple Glazed Walnuts

This is a very easy to make gift because the slowcooker does most of the work.  I’m kind of a simple gal so I just like to package them in a disposable container and sometimes I slap a crocheted ornament on top for decoration.  If you want to feel the full Martha Stewart fantasy, you could use cute cookie tins, ribbon,  glitter, etc.



20 ounces walnuts

5/8 cup maple syrup

5/8 cup butter

1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract


Put everything into the slow cooker and cook for approximately 2 hours on low.  Stir the mixture occasionally to make sure that all walnuts are equally coated. When nuts are ready, cool them on a sheet of parchment paper. If you are going to use them soon, you can just keep it in a zip-lock bag before serving. If you want to store walnuts for later, put them in the freezer.
