2 cups of pecans
1 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons of water


In a medium-sized saucepan, combine brown sugar, salt, ground cinnamon, and water. Stir the mixture over medium-high heat until it has fully melted and becomes a thick, syrupy consistency.

Add the pecans to the syrup and stir them thoroughly, ensuring that each pecan is coated with the sweet mixture. Cook the pecans in the syrup for about 2 minutes, stirring continuously. This will help the pecans become nicely candied and evenly coated.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Carefully transfer the candied pecans from the saucepan to the parchment paper, spreading them out in a single layer to cool. Be cautious, as the syrup will be very hot.

Allow the candied pecans to cool completely. As they cool, the syrup will harden, creating a delightful, sweet shell around the pecans.

Once the candied pecans have cooled and the coating is firm, break them into bite-sized pieces or leave them whole, depending on your preference.

Share your delicious candied pecans with the people you care about. They make a wonderful homemade gift or a delightful snack for any occasion.

Enjoy your homemade Candied Pecans!
