  • Add the butter and sweetener to a medium saucepan. Heat on medium until melted. Add the pecans and cook for about 5-8 minutes until the syrup begins turning brown and the pecans smell toasted. Remove from the heat. Stir every 5 minutes as they cool. The syrup will continue to thicken. Once they are well coated and room temperature transfer to a waxed paper lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until the coating is hard.


Notes on Sweeteners: 
I use my own blend of xylitol, erythritol, and stevia in my recipes. This is twice as sweet as sugar. It is comparable to Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet and Truvia.

To sub in Swerve use 1.5 to 2 times the amount of sweetener called for.
To sub in Pyure or Trim Healthy Mama Super Sweet use half the amount of sweetener called for.
Substitutions will work in most recipes. They may not work in candies, such as caramel.
