Candied Maple Pecans
These candied maple pecans are unbelievably simple to make and ridiculously delicious to snack on. Put them in a mason jar with a ribbon, and they’ll also make great gifts for friends during the holidays. Enjoy them on their own, toss with chopped dried fruits for a great trail mix, or crumble them over ice cream for a decadent dessert. You’ll find pecans and maple syrup featured in the weekly sale from November 23rd – 28th, so it’s a great time to whip up a big batch!
In a heavy-bottomed skillet or pan, heat the pecans, maple syrup, and cinnamon over low to medium-low heat, stirring continuously. The maple syrup will start to bubble and you’ll see the extra moisture evaporating. Keep cooking and stirring until all of the extra moisture has evaporated and the maple sugar starts to crystallize and stick to the nuts. This should take 5-8 minutes. Make sure you stir the whole time so that you don’t burn the nuts.
