More About This Recipe
  • Don’t overlook these glazed pecans! Though pecans are often best known in recipes like pecan pie and pralines, these buttery nuts taste pretty great on their own and even better when you add a few extra ingredients. Butter, sugar and maple syrup are all that’s required to take your pecans to the next level in this recipe, but you can also add some cinnamon for extra flavor. Baked in the oven in less than 10 minutes, it’s hard to believe that these tasty bites take such little effort to make. You can keep the whole batch for yourself (we won’t judge), but these glazed pecans also make for a cute gift to give to friends and family around the holidays. They can be stored in a sealed container for up to two weeks. Pour some in mason jars and decorate with ribbons or holiday stickers, or even dress up plain plastic containers with some colored tape, stickers or ribbon. While we love gifting these pecans around Christmastime, you can easily make these any time of year when you want to deliver something sweet to a loved one. Need more easy snack ideas? We have plenty of snack recipes for you to whip up at home any time of year, whether you are craving sweet or salty bites.
