Candied Pecan Recipe

Candied Pecan

Course: Dessert


  • 3/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup pecans


  • Preheat oven to 375 °F.
  • Mix sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Saute butter and maple syrup in a large pan, and bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat. Add nuts and toss to coat.
  • Transfer nuts to a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
  • Sprinkle with sugar mixture over top of the nuts and toss gently to coat; DO NOT MIX too much because the sugar will dissolve and won't stick to the top of your nuts.
  • Cook in the oven at 375 °F. It should take about 5-10 minutes. Be sure not to overcook, as the nuts will darken slightly after being removed from the oven.
