Make candied walnuts
Place ½ a tablespoon of brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of honey in a small non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Add ½ a cup of walnuts and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently to ensure the mixture doesn’t burn and the walnuts are completely coated. Transfer the candied walnuts immediately to a parchment lined baking sheet and separate the nuts immediately. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
