Wet Walnuts - Ice cream toppings

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Monday, July 17, 2017

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
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup of milk
2 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
a pinch of salt (optional)

  • Take chopped walnuts in a bowl.  In a microwave-safe jug, take milk, corn syrup, butter, brown sugar and salt. Whisk well to combine.
  • Microwave high for 30 seconds, take it out whisk well and microwave for another 15 seconds. The liquid should be hot. Stir in the vanilla.
  • Take it out and pour it over the nuts. Mix well to combine. Let it sit on the counter and cool completely. 
  • Store in the refrigerator and use a generous amount on top of your favorite ice-creams. i personally prefer for vanilla ice-cream.
