Glazed candied pecans made with just three ingredients in about 5 minutes. These candied pecans are delicious as a snack or as a topping for salads and desserts.
I’ve been obsessed with candied pecans lately. They’re soo addictive when eaten by themselves. I swear, I’ve been eating them nonstop, which is soo bad. Especially when I’m trying to save them for recipes.
Not that they’re hard to make, but I’d like to have them ready as toppings for salads and other desserts.
If only I can stop eating them at the pace that I’ve been eating them….
These candied pecans are so easy to make.
All you have to do is heat sugar and water together in a small pan or pot. Add the pecans and stir until the pecans are evenly covered.
Allow the pecans to dry. They will appear glazed.
Now, you can store these glazed candied pecans in an air tight container, eat them as a snack, or use them as a topper for your favorite salads or desserts.
See? So easy to make.
