Candied Pecans


Whenever I make these Candied Pecans we cannot stop eating them. They have a light sugary coating that goes well in a salad on a pie or with candied yams for Thanksgiving. This is an easy recipe to put together. It does take a little time to bake and stir every 15 minutes so the nuts do not burn, but it gives you time to sip some hot chocolate.

Candied Pecans is an easy recipe with brown sugar and cinnamon. Tastes great on salads or on sweet potatoes.

Package these delicious candied pecans up and deliver them as thank you gifts or neighbor gifts. Your friends will be asking you for the recipe!
