Sprinkle Candied Spice Pecans anywhere for a taste of the holidays.
These lovely Candied Spice Pecans are an easy way to add refined holiday taste to dinners, salads and desserts, or make an excellent snack! What sets them apart from other candied nuts is the addition of fragrant holiday spices like allspice, cinnamon and clove.
Making Candied Spice Pecans
Making these nuts is so simple! You’ll just mix granulated sugar, brown sugar, allspice, clove and cinnamon in some water and pour it over chopped pecans in a large non-stick skillet.
As the nuts cook in this mixture, the water absorbs, leaving the sugar and spices behind on the nuts. Plus your pecans get toasted as well, bringing even more delicious flavor to Candied Spice Pecans.
When the water is mostly evaporated your Candied Spice Pecans are done and ready to be cooled.
Pour them out onto a large piece of parchment paper. I separate them a bit with a spoon to help them cool as individual pieces and not clumps.
When fully cooled to room temperature, bag them up and store them in the fridge until you’re ready for them. They’re wonderful over french toast, in my Chicken Apple Cheddar Salad, Pumpkin spice Cheesecake Trifle, on a meat and cheese board (charcuterie board), or a simple table snack!
These nuts have just the right amount of sugar and spice (and everything nice!). Give them a try and please rate and comment on this recipe below. Thanks!Print
