My Georgia: Gozinaki Recipe (Candied Walnuts)

Gozinaki
Gozinaki is a traditional Georgian candy made around Christmas or New Year.  A friend of mine is visiting from the country of Georgia and she brought us this delicious treat she made herself.

Ingredients:
3 1/2 cups shelled and toasted walnuts
1 cup honey
1-2 tbs sugar

Chop walnuts coarsely.  In a deep saucepan bring the honey to a boil.  Add sugar.  Stir in the nuts and cook over medium heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring periodically with a wooden spoon, until the mixture is think.
Pour the mixture out onto a moistened wooden board.  With a spatula or hand , spread it 1/2 inch thick.  When cool, cut into 2-inch diamonds.
