Wet Walnuts – Ice cream toppings

Ice-cream toppings, when you think of it, first that pops in our mind is chocolate sauce. As a grown up, when we visited ice-cream parlous, that is when i came to know about the huge varieties of toppings available, chocolate sauce, blueberry sauce, hot fudge, caramel, nuts, candies, the list too long. 
While looking for some interesting toppings, i came across a list from Saveur magazine. Loved the variety and i chose this simple wet walnuts for today’s post. It is pretty easy to make and it stays good for a month, when stored in the fridge. Since it is a topping and should be used little, i made just 1/2 cup of it. Now with the topping ready, i m planning to make some good old vanilla ice-cream this week to enjoy with this!

1 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup light corn syrup
