I have been making these sugared pecans since my kids were little. They were a favorite with everyone, especially my son. I would have to ration them and put out just a small bowl at a time or they would all be gone in less than an hour if I didn’t. They are still a favorite, and so easy to make! I always make them over the Christmas holiday and put them in this cute little dish in the picture that says ‘Tis the Season to Have Another…” with a spoon that says “A Spoonful of Naughty”. Enjoy!
