A couple of recipes for you to try:

Sugared Walnuts

2 c Walnut halves, raw
1 tb Sugar
1 c Peanut oil

Blanch walnut halves for 30 seconds; drain. While still slightly damp, dredge nuts in sugar. Spread them out to dry. Heat oil in wok to about 200 degrees, or until a test walnut browns in about 30 seconds. If walnut is too dark, oil is too hot. Deep-fry nuts, 1/2 cup at a time. Sugar will melt and form a thin, hard outer shell. Cool and cover until ready to serve.

Sugared Walnuts

1 pound Walnut pieces
1/2 cup Unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup Powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon, ground
1/4 teaspoon Ginger, ground
1/4 teaspoon Allspice, ground
1/8 teaspoon Cloves, ground

In a 3 1/2 quart slow cooker, stir the walnuts and butter until combined. Add the powdered sugar, stirring to coat evenly. Cover and slow-cook on high for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and slow cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the nuts are coated with a crisp glaze, about 2 hours.

Transfer the nuts to a serving bowl. In a small bowl, combine the spices and sift them over the nuts, stirring to coat evenly. Cool the nuts completely before serving.
