Cinnamon Sugared Walnuts

IMG_1740

Ingredients:
1 Pound walnuts, halves
1 1/2 Cup sugar, white
1 Cup milk, 2%
2 tsp cinnamon, ground
1/2 tsp salt, table
1 tsp extract, vanilla

Directions:
In a saucepan combine the sugar, milk, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk over medium high heat until all of the ingredients are combined completely, then stop stirring and bring to a boil. Boil the mixture gently until it reaches 235-245 degrees (soft ball stage) on a candy thermometer, about 15 minutes. I actually reached 240 for mine.

Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Add walnuts working as quickly as possible to coat them all.

Spread the walnuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Break apart any big chunks and allow to cool completely.
