Honey spiced pecans


A warning - these tasty little nibbles are addictive! Pecans are good to begin with, but toss them in a hot melty mess of honey and spice and suddenly there's no such thing as just a few. Have them in a salad, dip them in yogurt, or just pile these sticky candied nuts in a stack and enjoy them as they are. Yum yum!

I think snacks should always be easy to prepare and that holds true here. This snack starts with a mixture of honey, vanilla and spices heated on the stove until ooey gooey, then tossed with the nuts and baked quickly in a hot oven. So quick and a really special treat.


Here's how I made them:

1/3 cup liquid honey
2 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp salt
3 cups unsalted pecans

While my oven preheated to 400 degrees (F), I combined the honey, oil, vanilla, cinnamon, coriander, and salt in a large non-stick skillet and brought it to a bubble over medium-high heat. Using a rubber spatula, I stirred while the mixture continued to bubble and darken for 2-3 minutes. I removed the skillet from the heat and added the pecans, stirring well to coat the nuts. I spread the pecans out on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and baked them in the oven for 5-7 minutes. The pan was then placed on a wire cooling rack until the sticky pecans were cool enough to handle. Delish!


Addictive!

  1. Do you think this would work with almonds as well?
