What I love most about this cookbook (well, pamphlet, really) are the first two pages on Walnut Know-How! Be sure to scroll down. Lots of good information!
Here's an easy recipe from the Diamond Walnut Recipe Gems Cookbook for Chocolate Walnut Mounds. Make this to celebrate the day!
CHOCOLATE WALNUT MOUNDS
Melt one 6-ounce package (1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate pieces over hot, not boiling water, stirring constantly. Beat till cool. Stir in 1 1/2 cups Diamond Walnut halves and large pieces. Drop in clusters on waxed paper.
