5 Minute Caramel Walnuts

Caramel walnuts are a delightful combination of crunchy walnuts and sweet, buttery caramel. They make for a tasty snack, a dessert topping, or a lovely homemade gift. Here’s a quick and easy recipe to make caramel walnuts in just 5 minutes:


  • 1 cup walnut halves or pieces
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Prepare the Walnuts:

a. Place the walnut halves or pieces in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast them in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 5-7 minutes or until they become lightly toasted and aromatic. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning.

2. Make the Caramel:

a. In a heavy-bottomed skillet or saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat.

b. Add the granulated sugar to the melted butter. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon or heat-resistant spatula.

c. Continue to stir until the sugar melts and turns a caramel brown color. This should take about 2-3 minutes.

3. Add the Walnuts:

a. As soon as the caramel has formed, quickly add the toasted walnuts to the skillet.
