Thanks to their versatility and their mild taste, California walnuts are a perfect ingredient for sweets not only during the festive season, but all year round. The classic combination is chocolate and nuts, combining sweet, bitter and crunchy elements. Walnuts can be used with every type of chocolate: for example as a creamy filling, a tasty topping or as a roasted or caramelized ingredient. Candied walnuts also make for a great snack for everyone with a sweet tooth.
The possibilities for the development of new products are endless: walnut power bars, walnut butter or walnut marzipan are just the tip of the iceberg. For more inspiration on how to use walnuts in confectionary, get in touch with us for formulations.
