- I like using red apple for appearance and also because most are sweet / a bit tart. Whereas granny smiths are tarter and gold apples tend to be sweeter.
- use any nuts you want here. Pecans and almonds are ideal.
Recipe makes more candied nuts than you need but I find it hard to make a smaller batch. Leftovers keeps for a week or two in an airtight container (or even freeze for months!)
sunflower seeds and pepitas would also be great here for texture and flavour.
per serving, assuming 5 servings assuming 3/4 cup of candied walnuts used.
