Candied Pecans are one of my favorite treats. I love sneaking a handful in the afternoon when I just want a few bites of something sweet. They are excellent on spinach salads with blue cheese, balsamic vinaigrette, and fresh berries.
Please take the time to toast your pecans first. It deepens the flavor of the nuts.
Candied pecans are a great snack or they can dress up your desserts and salads.
- Combine 2 T. butter, sweetener, and cream over medium heat. Stir until sweetener is dissolved. Add vanilla and cinnamon, if using.
- Cook until it is a deep golden brown. As soon as it reached that deep color (right before burning) remove from the heat and immediately add the other 1 T. butter. Stir until smooth.
- Add salt and toasted pecans. Drop by spoonfuls or spread on wax paper. Refrigerate until firm. If you spread out the mixture you can just break it into pieces.
I toast nuts at 400 degrees until they are lightly browned and smell heavenly.
