I was making a spinach salad the other day, and I wanted to make candied pecans. It normally takes quite a long time to make them, and I didn’t have enough time before dinner to pull it out. Therefore, I decided to make up a quick and easy candied pecan recipe, and it was great. This recipe is so much more convenient than making them using the hour long process I’m used to doing. They were kind of addictive too. I can’t tell you how many I ate before they hit my salad. Oops. Candied pecans are such a great addition to so many salads. I’m glad to know that I now have a fast option. There’s no reason for me to return to making the longer version.
Quick and Easy Candied Pecans (takes about 5 minutes so make and 10 to cool)
2 cups Pecans
4 Tbsp Salted Butter
3 Tbsp Brown Sugar (I like mine sweet)
1 Tbsp White Sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
Pinch of Salt
Melt butter on medium-high heat. Add pecans and toss to coat. Add brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon and salt. Spread on wax paper or a silicone mat to cool.
