Add walnuts and gently stir, using a heatproof spatula, until coated with sugar mixture. Cover, reduce heat to medium-high, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring twice. Uncover and continue to cook, stirring gently, until caramelized, 2 to 3 minutes more.

    Sounds great, but I would feel more comfortable knowing what temperature to aim for. 238F - 310F? Thanks!
