1⁄4 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon honey

2 tablespoons unsweetened condensed milk

1 cup walnut pieces

In a medium-sized saucepan, stir together the sugar, honey, and milk over low heat. Add the walnut pieces, stirring to make sure they are entirely coated in the sugar mixture. Increase heat to medium and bring to a boil. Let boil for several minutes, stirring occasionally, as the sugar darkens. When it has browned on the edges, remove from the heat.
Pour the walnut mixture onto a greased baking sheet and cool. Separate the walnuts and store in an airtight container or plastic bag. (They will last for about 1 week.)
