  • 1 cup walnuts, halves or pieces
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Prepare Walnuts:
  • Place a non-stick skillet or a pan over medium heat. Add the walnuts and toast them for 2-3 minutes until they become fragrant. Keep stirring to prevent burning.
