  • 3 cups pecans
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • In a 12-inch skillet, bring nuts, sugar, water, and cinnamon to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to a low boil and cook stirring until syrup mixture has caramelized and the nuts are well coated. This will take 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Immediately spread nuts on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and spread into a single layer.
  • Bake in a 300°F oven for 10 minutes. Stir and bake for an additional 8 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, stir and allow to cool on a wire rack.
  • Store in an airtight container.


  • Use mixed nuts, almonds or cashews instead of pecans in this recipe.
  • Also, add 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper to kick up the heat
