Are you a big snacker? I honestly have never been a big eat in between meals kind of person. I fuel my in between meal time with coffee, for sure, but have never been one to really snack a lot on other things.

I’m starting to think that’s because maybe I haven’t been snacking on the right foods. I made this amazing recipe for Whiskey Honey Toasted Walnuts originally as a salad topper and as something to add texture and flavor to my morning yogurt. What I didn’t expect to happen was to create a new snack food that I just can’t stop eating! I should probably be embarrassed by the sheer number of walnuts I’ve eaten as a snack since creating this recipe. I just can’t seem to get enough of them!

I guess what I can say about this walnut recipe is that it can turn even a non-snacker into a snacker! It’s also a really easy recipe to make, so you can replenish your snack jar quite easily when you run out. This may or may not be a problem… since they are so easy to make, I’ve had a bit of a problem controlling myself :)

I hope you’ll give this recipe a try… top these toasted Diamond walnuts onto your salad, stir them into some vanilla yogurt at breakfast, or just pop some in your mouth at snack time. I think you’ll enjoy them as much as I continue to.

A simple recipe using Diamond brand walnuts, perfect for snacking or to place on top yogurt or salads.



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. In a medium saucepan, stir together honey, granulated sugar, Irish whiskey and salt. Cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes, or until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a slow boil.
  3. Add walnut halves. Stir to coat. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring, until syrup begins to bubble up and turn a light brown in color.
  4. Remove from heat and drain liquid through a strainer.
  5. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place coated walnuts onto parchment paper in a single layer, separating as much as possible.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes (watch closely so they don't burn).
  7. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  8. Once cooled, separate walnuts from each other and use to top salad, stir into yogurt or as a tasty snack.

  1. I myself am a a big snacker? I always eat snack between meals. Even during midnight. These whiskey honey toasted walnuts are very delicious and looks like something that I will never get tired of.

  2. i’m allergic to walntus but Blue Diamond almonds would be a pretty tasty sub I’m guessing. As if I have to guess. Keep on snacking sister!

  3. I LOVE walnuts! It was my favorite snack in college. I need to have a bag with me, especially while I’m working, or I get anxious! Love this toasted version. Can’t wait to try it!

  4. I love snacking on walnuts!! And I bet I would love it even more if I added whiskey. ;-) These photographs are stunning!

  5. These nuts look fabulous. So much yum!

  6. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Walnuts are supposed to really good for your brain, so don’t feel bad for consuming large quantities!

  8. Oh, these would be perfect on top of a salad or just for snacking! Pinning!

  9. I would totally throw these on a salad, yum! I’m also a snacker, probably why I have such waistline concerns these days, haha.

  10. I am definitely a snacker. I feel like all I do is eat. These walnuts sound amazing. Pinned.

  11. I really do love to snack! These nuts sound and look wonderful :)

  12. I’m a total sucker for candied nuts – and wish whiskey? You just know the way to my heart!

  13. Salad appears to be definitely delectable…..

  14. You make snacking look so fabulous! Gorgeous photos, and love this recipe.

  15. Would love to sprinkle them over ice cream. They’re a reminder of trips to a local ice cream parlor for wet walnuts…

  16. Oh wow, I have a husband that would LOVE these! Especially with the little bit of salt on them. (That is if I didn’t eat them all before he got home!)

  17. Yum! I’m wondering if the resulting liquid would work for coughs/soothing sore throats? When I have a bad cold, a little honey whiskey (by itself or added to hot tea) seems to help my throat. Can’t wait to try these!

  18. Instead of throwing the liquid away, could you continue to add more walnuts until the liquid is used up?
