How to Make Salted Caramel Walnuts with Rosemary

Last week I wrote a post covering 15+ Homemade Christmas Food Gift Ideas, so check it out if you still haven’t done it. If it’s still not helpful and sounds like a lot of work (although it doesn’t), I got you covered. Today I share a recipe of Salted Caramel Walnuts with Rosemary. You might already have ingredients at home, as you only need walnuts, brown sugar, rosemary, sea salt and a pinch of cayenne. Moreover, it just takes 10 minutes and minimum efforts to make them! Sounds crazy but it’s true. So, 5 ingredients, 10 minutes, a nice gift bag or jar and here you go: a perfect last-minute homemade gift is ready! Did I mention that it’s also healthy and delicious? If you got all gifts ready for Christmas, make these salted caramel walnuts anyway as a snack to enjoy during holidays!

Salted Caramel Walnuts with Rosemary: Delicious, flavorful and healthy snack made in just 10 minutes with 5 ingredients. Easy and fancy Christmas gift!I wanted to try salted caramel just to figure out what this all buzz is about. I was skeptical, as I don’t like salted chocolate, which is strange because I like salt and I like chocolate, but their combination just didn’t work for me. Salted caramel is a totally different thing! It’s as good as bacon and maple syrup and as delicate as prosciutto ham with melon, blue cheese with honey or feta cheese and watermelon. Being a recent trend, salted caramel is becoming increasingly popular. And now I know why: it has an incredibly delicious, unique and pleasurable taste which is seriously addictive! In combination with walnuts, rosemary and cayenne this flavor becomes richer and more complex, as some bitterness and pungency is added. This makes my salted caramel walnuts a perfect snack and a perfect homemade gift for Christmas. Check the recipe below and spend 10 minutes to make it!
