It is always a hard choice figuring out what recipe to start my 12 days of Homemade Christmas. This year I decided on Simple Candied Pecans.

Have you ever gone to Bass Pro Shops or Cabelas? Those stores are a magnet for both my husband and oldest son. While they are off exploring and looking at things my nose takes me somewhere else, their warm, roasted nuts. They smell delicious! Sadly though I have never tried them thanks to my celiac but I imagine they are pretty tasty. What I have done instead is to make my own at home.

Candied pecans are pretty simple to make. They only need a small handful of ingredients an hour or so of your time. When you are done you are left with delicious candied pecans. The pecans are perfect for gifting to friends and family or just keeping for yourself if you don’t feel like sharing after you make them. We love to snack on them and add them to spinach berry salads. They are also a great addition to charcuterie trays.
