I don't know if this is the one you are looking for but I have been making these since 1963 for friends and family at christmas. Now they are almost demanded at christmas. From and old Betty Crocker cookbook

Crispy Sugared Walnuts

Heat 3 cups walnut halves in moderate oven(375) 5 minutes, stirring once, Butter sides of heavy 2-quart saucepan.

In saucepan, combine 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

Heat and stir until sugar dissolves and mixture boils. Cook without stirring to softball stage (236 degrees). Use candy thermometer

Remove from heat. Beat by hand about 1 minute or till mixture just begins to get creamy. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla and the warm nuts.

Stir gently till nuts are well coated and mixture becomes creamy. Turn out on buttered platter or cookie sheet ( I put waxed paper on cookie sheet)

Separate at once using 2 spoons or forks.Let cool. Makes about 1 pound of crunchy Sugared Walnuts. Delicious with crisp fall apples.

Good Luck! Hope this helps

These are so good and very easy to make:

Chinese Fried Walnuts

6 cups water

4 cups English walnut halves

1/2 cup sugar


1. Heat water to boiling in a pot, add walnuts and heat to boiling again; cook 1 minute. Drain and rinse nuts under running hot tap water. Drain well. Wash and dry pot.

2. Put hot nuts in a large bowl. Pour sugar over hot nuts and stir with a rubber spatula until sugar is dissolved and nuts are coated. ( if necessary, let mixture stand for 5 min.)

3. Meanwhile in same pot, heat about 1" of oil over med. heat to 350° F. on thermometer. Add about half the nuts with a slotted spoon; fry about 5 min. or until golden brown, stirring often. Watch carefully for they will change colors quickly.

4. Remove from pot with slotted spoon and place in coarse sieve or colander over a bowl to drain; sprinkle lightly with salt. Toss nuts to keep from sticking together. Transfer to paper towels to finish cooling; fry rest of nuts.

Store in tightly covered container, if they last that long. Enjoy!

I have used Indianlady's recipe several times and is very good. I want to try the recipe Postaldoris posted. It looks a little easier and sounds delicious.
