Candied Pecans | Mouthwatering Goodness

Candied Pecans.  Mouthwatering.  Deliciousness.
Need a last minute holiday snack or homemade gift?
Have I got a treat for you!

Yes, at this time of the year, we bake lots of cookies, make lots of snacks and probably gain few extra pounds.  And you know what?  It’s worth it {giggle}.  It’s that one time where we can sort-of, kind-of justify it.  It’s almost impossible not to treat yourself to all of the yummy goodness that comes with the season.  So, what do you say to Mouthwatering Candied Pecans?  Yes, No, Maybe?

Well, if you can’t eat them or you’re a person who can pass on the sweets, then you might keep in mind that these make a perfect favor at your holiday gathering, munchy in your candy dish — or a fabulous sweet treat for a friend.  It’s super easy and no-bake!  I believe one of our college friends introduced this to my sister and I.  It’s now a household favorite!  And a wee-bit addictive {smile}. Let’s get to the recipe, shall we?

    Oh, these are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!! I made them last year (after you sent me the recipe again..THANK YOU!!), and I swear they’re the reason I gained 7 pounds over Christmas! 😉 (But so totally worth it!)
