These are similar to what is served at TCBY as a topping. I make this often and keep in the refrigerator for my family to enjoy anytime. It’s a nice change from chocolate or marshmallow topping for ice cream. I also use it as a filing for cakes and a topping for grooms cakes with a buttercream border to contain the walnuts. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.
1 C Walnut Pieces
1/4 C Maple Syrup (any brand)
1/4 C Dark Corn Syrup
1/4 tsp Maplene Flavoring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place walnuts in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Toast until golden brown and fragrant for about 5-8 minutes. Remove pan from oven and set aside.
Combine maple syrup, corn syrup and flavoring in a bowl. Add the walnuts and stir until nuts are well coated. The walnuts can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
