Candied Pecans

Yield Makes about 2 1/2 cups


  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Spread pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes. (Don't overbake; pecans burn easily.)

  2. Melt butter and honey in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add pecans, stirring until coated. Cool completely.

  3. Combine sugar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Remove pecans using a slotted spoon, and place in sugar mixture, tossing to coat.
