How to Candy Pecans





Introduction: How to Candy Pecans

Candied pecans make an amazing addition to any food: as garnishing on desserts, in salads, or just plain, these nuts pack a punch! Their versatility make them quite popular.

Who doesn't enjoy a good pecan? Now roast them, add butter and brown sugar, and you've got yourself pecan crack! Also known as Candied Pecans.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

You will need

2 Cups Pecan Halves
4 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Butter (salted or not)

sauce pan

Step 2: Roasting the Pecans

Throw all of your pecans in a sauce pan, and pan-fry for about 2 minutes. This will soften the pecans, and really accentuate the nutty flavor.

Step 3: Add in Other Ingredients

After the pecans have been pan fried, toss in the butter, and stir so all nuts are well-coated.

Stir in brown sugar, and keep the nuts moving so neither the butter nor the sugar burn. This should take no more than 5 minutes.

Step 4: Let Cool and Then Gobble!

Let cool for 10 minutes, so the sugar can set in all the delicious crevices of the pecans!

Throw in a salad, or garnish on dessert. These little guys are phenomenal!
