Minted Walnuts

printer-friendly version
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup water
1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
6 marshmallows
3/4 tsp. peppermint extract
2-1/2 cups walnut halves
Combine sugar, salt, water, and corn syrup in a saucepan. Cook over moderate heat until syrup reaches 230° on a candy thermometer or until a little of the mixture forms a soft ball when dropped into cold water.

Remove from heat; add marshmallows and peppermint; stir until marshmallows are melted. Add nuts; stir gently until nuts are evenly coated. 

Turn out onto a cookie sheet and separate nuts into a single layer with a fork. Cool completely and store in a tightly covered container.
