Y’all, I had the best intentions of getting nice pictures of these nuts so that you could see how amazing they are. But you know what happened? I went back to work and winter daylight is basically non existent. BUT I wanted to get this posted so you have time to make them for Thanksgiving! So I will do my best to update these pictures when I can, but for now you can enjoy my insta-story pic of these delicious pecans.

UPDATE: I finally got to photograph these pecans! I made them for a family gathering last weekend, and they were a big hit with my in-laws!

These candied pecans are perfect as a snack for parties, or you can put them in a cute jar for a hostess gift! They’re slightly sweet and satisfyingly crunchy. My husband has already requested I make more!

They’re also super easy to make, so if you’re not very skilled in the kitchen you can absolutely make these and look like a pro. 🙂
