Caramelized Walnuts With Cream (Nueces Caramelizadas Con Nata)

Crunchy walnuts and whipped cream merry wonderfully in this simple Spanish dessert

1 cup walnut pieces
1/3 cup white sugar
1 cup whipping cream, chilled
1 tbsp white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract 

In a large skillet combine walnuts and 1/3 cup sugar. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat, until walnuts are coated with melted sugar. Remove from heat and pour the mixture carefully into a foil-lined cookie sheet. Spread in single layer. Cool and break into pieces. Store in an air-tight container. 
In a large bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1 tbsp sugar and vanilla, beat until stiff peaks form. Spoon whipped cream into dessert dishes and sprinkle with caramelized walnuts. 


  1. Yum! Jon loves all types of nuts so he would lovee this dessert! Looking forward to learning more about European dishes!
