candy-spiced-pecansYields: 8 oz.


    1 cup Pecans

    ½ cup  Granulated Sugar

    ⅛ tsp Cayenne Pepper

    ½ tbsp Cinnamon

    1 tsp Nutmeg



  • In a saucepan mix sugar and just enough water to mix the sugar up without it sticking to the pot.

  • Heat up the sugar mixture on medium-high heat until it reaches around 250 degrees, or just before it starts to turn caramel around the edges.

  • Pour in the pecans and stir with a wooden spoon, removing it from the heat and back on again as needed until the pecans are evenly coated with the crystallized sugar.

  • Transfer the pecans quickly to a stainless steel bowl and toss with the spices until evenly coated. You can add more or less of each to taste.

  • Lay them out on a sheet tray to cool. Store in an air-tight container after they cool for up to a couple of months.
