Candied pecans is super easy to make on the stovetop with this recipe. These taste just like praline pecans and made with brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and cayenne.
(if you want a little more heat, use 1/4 tsp)
Add all the ingredients (except the pecans) to a frying pan or skillet.
Stir and cook over medium heat. The brown sugar and spices will dissolve into the water to look like a syrup. Bring to a boil and lower heat a little for it to simmer.
Continue to let the mixture simmer and for about 3 minutes.
Stir in the pecans to they are completely coated in the syrup mixture.
Continue to cook, stirring often, for a 2-3 more minutes.
Scoop out the candy coated pecans and place on a sheet of parchment paper or silicone baking sheet. Make sure the pecans are separated.
Let the pecans cool completely. Store in
