Are you a big snacker? I honestly have never been a big eat in between meals kind of person. I fuel my in between meal time with coffee, for sure, but have never been one to really snack a lot on other things.

I’m starting to think that’s because maybe I haven’t been snacking on the right foods. I made this amazing recipe for Whiskey Honey Toasted Walnuts originally as a salad topper and as something to add texture and flavor to my morning yogurt. What I didn’t expect to happen was to create a new snack food that I just can’t stop eating! I should probably be embarrassed by the sheer number of walnuts I’ve eaten as a snack since creating this recipe. I just can’t seem to get enough of them!

I guess what I can say about this walnut recipe is that it can turn even a non-snacker into a snacker! It’s also a really easy recipe to make, so you can replenish your snack jar quite easily when you run out. This may or may not be a problem… since they are so easy to make, I’ve had a bit of a problem controlling myself 🙂

I hope you’ll give this recipe a try… top these toasted Diamond walnuts onto your salad, stir them into some vanilla yogurt at breakfast, or just pop some in your mouth at snack time. I think you’ll enjoy them as much as I continue to.

    I myself am a a big snacker? I always eat snack between meals. Even during midnight. These whiskey honey toasted walnuts are very delicious and looks like something that I will never get tired of.

    i’m allergic to walntus but Blue Diamond almonds would be a pretty tasty sub I’m guessing. As if I have to guess. Keep on snacking sister!

    I LOVE walnuts! It was my favorite snack in college. I need to have a bag with me, especially while I’m working, or I get anxious! Love this toasted version. Can’t wait to try it!

    Walnuts are supposed to really good for your brain, so don’t feel bad for consuming large quantities!

  6. Snack Time {Recipe: Whiskey Honey Toasted Walnuts} (13)Paula – bell’alimento says

    Oh, these would be perfect on top of a salad or just for snacking! Pinning!

  7. Snack Time {Recipe: Whiskey Honey Toasted Walnuts} (14)Ashley Bee says

    I would totally throw these on a salad, yum! I’m also a snacker, probably why I have such waistline concerns these days, haha.

    I am definitely a snacker. I feel like all I do is eat. These walnuts sound amazing. Pinned.

  9. Snack Time {Recipe: Whiskey Honey Toasted Walnuts} (16)Nutmeg Nanny says

    I really do love to snack! These nuts sound and look wonderful 🙂

  10. Snack Time {Recipe: Whiskey Honey Toasted Walnuts} (17)Megan {Country Cleaver} says

    I’m a total sucker for candied nuts – and wish whiskey? You just know the way to my heart!

  11. Snack Time {Recipe: Whiskey Honey Toasted Walnuts} (20)The Duo Dishes says

    Would love to sprinkle them over ice cream. They’re a reminder of trips to a local ice cream parlor for wet walnuts…

  12. Snack Time {Recipe: Whiskey Honey Toasted Walnuts} (21)Cookin' Cowgirl says

    Oh wow, I have a husband that would LOVE these! Especially with the little bit of salt on them. (That is if I didn’t eat them all before he got home!)
    Pinned!

  13. Snack Time {Recipe: Whiskey Honey Toasted Walnuts} (22)Terri H says

    Yum! I’m wondering if the resulting liquid would work for coughs/soothing sore throats? When I have a bad cold, a little honey whiskey (by itself or added to hot tea) seems to help my throat. Can’t wait to try these!

  14. Snack Time {Recipe: Whiskey Honey Toasted Walnuts} (23)Judie says

    Instead of throwing the liquid away, could you continue to add more walnuts until the liquid is used up?

  15. Snack Time {Recipe: Whiskey Honey Toasted Walnuts} (24)Maryann says

    Question… I have made this recipe a couple of times and love it. But when I store the walnuts in a container they stick together. Am I doing something wrong?

  16. Snack Time {Recipe: Whiskey Honey Toasted Walnuts} (25)A says

    Made it! Thanks for the recipe. They are sooo delicious! :))) BUT they are sticky and kind of “wet”… which makes my hands sticky. Did I do sth wrong or should it be like that? How to help it to make roasted walnuts not so sticky but completely crunchy?
