Directions

Combine sugar, honey and water in sauce pan and cook to 242 degrees F on candy thermometer or soft ball stage.

Add walnuts and vanilla; stir until creamy and thick. Turn onto waxed paper to harden, then break into individual pieces.

You can add grated orange peel or cinnamon to the syrup for variety. Makes 1-1/2 lbs. (Makes a nice gift in those 99 cent store "cut glass" dishes.)
