Super easy Spiced Pecans

Candied Pecans

Need to bring a hostess gift? Put these in a Mason jar, tie a bow around that sucker and you’re done!

Are you in charge of a salad tomorrow and don’t know what to put on it? Chop these up and throw them in a mixed green salad with sliced apples, and dried cranberries for the perfect starter.

Needing to add some spice to a cheese plate? Sprinkle these around your cheese plate to add an extra element of deliciousness!

This recipe is a SUPER easy, and the pecans are literally the most satisfying thing you’ll ever have. In our house, these things don’t last long- and one batch makes 2 lbs! This is a family recipe (Thanks, Renee!), and I am so glad she taught me how to make them!

Ok, here’s how to do it:


1 2lb bag pecans (I get mine at Costco)

1 cube butter

1 Cup brown sugar

1 Teaspoon vanilla

sea salt


Melt the butter, sugar, and vanilla on top of stove in a stainless bowl or med sauce pan if you prefer. Be careful, it melts and burns really quickly!

Stir in pecans, coat well and dump onto cookie sheet (with sides). Sprinkle with sea salt . Place cookie sheet on the second shelf with the oven set to broil. When brown, take out of the oven, and flip them. Do this 7 or 8 times. Each time get’s quicker and they will burn in a blink! Sprinkle more sea salt if desired. Let cool until you can’t stand waiting anymore, and enjoy!



Cozy for Fall

UGG’s have been a staple in my wardrobe for as long as I can remember. They are hard to resist because of how comfortable and warm they are. Whether you’re running around town, or going to and from a workout class, they are the way to go! I hope you all have a great week!
