Candied Walnuts

I was at the grocery store and I saw that all the holiday nuts were out and the apple cider. It made me so happy. I thought this candied nut recipe would be a wonderful and comforting snack on a cold evening watching football or as an appetizer before the big turkey on Thanksgiving. It is hard to believe it is time to start planning for that wonderful meal once again!

1 cup white sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
