This sugar glazed walnuts recipe produces a sweet, crunchy and irresistible treat. Sugar glazed walnuts are great on salads, served as a party snack, and can be packaged and used as an edible gourmet gift.

Makes 2 lbs Sugar Glazed Walnuts

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 2 lb walnut halves
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl, and toss with a spoon until the sugar melts and all the walnuts are coated well. Using a slotted spoon (so that the excess sugar glaze and drip through), transfer the walnuts to a lined baking sheet (either foil, parchment, or a silicon baking mat). Bake for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

The glaze will set-up as the walnuts cool. Store in airtight containers.

glazed walnuts, Member judyvancendool

Our neighbour has an english walnut tree, so my grandson and husband cracked them. I used a lb. instead of 2 and used the recipe as for 2 lbs. except cut back on the cayenee pepper. Used parchment paper and had no trouble getting them off the paper. very nice taste and not too sweet. My grandson loved them and asked me to put them away as he had a hard time leaving them alone. Will definitely make again.
