What happens when you take something that's pretty darn awesome all by itself and then you add more awesomeness, awesome sauce and a little but of salt? You have Candied Espresso Walnuts, that's what.

Watch as Brandi takes on this well-loved recipe.


  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon finely ground coffee (preferably an espresso blend)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • half of an egg white
  • 2 cups of walnut halves


  1. Preheat the oven to 325F.
  2. Whisk sugar, coffee, cinnamon, and salt together until well combined.
  3. Add egg white and stir until it's a nice paste.
  4. Add walnuts and mix until all of them are coated in the seasoning.
  5. Spread walnuts out on a non-stick cookie sheet in a single layer.
  6. Bake about 15 minutes total, removing and stirring them about every 5 minutes.
  7. Bake until the coating has baked into a delicious glaze.
  8. Enjoy!!
