Sweet Walnut Dessert Drizzle | Do you know what makes desserts even better? If you answered more dessert on top of dessert, you would be correct! This homemade nut topping adds a maple-y caramel crunch to everything from ice cream to sweet potatoes to yogurt! | WildernessFamilyNaturals.com

I don’t discriminate against any dessert… I’m in love with them all.

Do you know what makes desserts even better?

If you answered more dessert on top of dessert, you would be correct!

I’m not talking about stacking cherry pie, onto chocolate cake, onto ice cream, onto pudding, topped with whipped cream. (Oh boy, I must be hungry.)

And this Sweet Walnut Dessert Drizzle… it’s a gloriously crunchy, sweet, and sticky topping that you can add to just about any treat.

What makes this recipe even better is that it’s not limited to just dessert! You can add this Sweet Walnut Dessert Drizzle to other dishes too:

  • Add to plain yogurt or kefir for a crunchy, maple-y snack.
  • Top your sweet potatoes.
  • Top your cereal or granola.
  • Spoon over pancakes.
  • Add to cookie and cake recipes.
  • Drizzle over ice cream. (Ok, I wandered back into desserts.)

That may sound a tad unhealthy, but this recipe is a bit different. There’s no corn syrup here.

This recipe uses two Real Food syrups: 100% maple syrup and WFN coconut syrup. If you haven’t tried coconut syrup before, you should. It  adds a delicious, caramel flavor to almost any recipe it enters. And though it has a rich sweetness it’s low on the glycemic index.  Win, win!

I would love to tell you about the walnuts I used, too! I used Wilderness Family Naturals soaked and dehydrated walnuts. These certified organic, walnuts come halved and ready to eat. The flavor is amazing!

I can’t wait for you to try my Sweet Walnut Dessert Drizzle!

Have you ever bought nutty toppings from the store that were full of corn syrup and other additives? Do you love that you can make your own, healthier nut topping?!
