Cooking with Kaylie: Candied Espresso Walnuts

This week, I decided to take a departure from my usual chocolate and espresso combo. Well, sort of. You see, I made these really yummy candied espresso walnuts. They were good as is, they really were! But for the next batch I added some chocolate, just to up the ante. The results? Still really delicious candied espresso walnuts.

The moral of that story is twofold: 1) I am clearly obsessed with chocolate and can’t handle a week without it, and 2) With or without chocolate, you really need to try these!


  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons finely ground espresso beans (yep, I used Velton’s Twilight Blend again - it is that good!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large egg white
  • 4 cups walnut halves


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  • Spray baking sheet with vegetable oil
  • Combine sugar, espresso, cinnamon and kosher salt in a bowl
  • In another bowl, whisk the egg white until frothy
  • Dip walnuts in egg mixture, then toss to coat in sugar mixture
  • Spread coated walnuts on cookie sheet in a single layer
  • Bake 5 minutes
  • Stir walnuts, loosening from cookie sheet and rearranging back into a single layer
  • Bake another 5 minutes, or until walnuts are dry to the touch
  • Remove walnuts from oven, loosen with spatula and let cool on baking sheet

The recipe said they would last in an airtight container for 2 weeks, but we ate them up so fast that I really can’t verify the validity of that statement.

I can say that these were super easy to make (probably the easiest recipe I’ve made so far) and should probably become a staple in your recipe box. I mean, everyone has a recipe box, right?
