The Best Candied Pecans

These Candied Nuts are caramelly, crunchy, and irresistible!  Made on the stovetop, they take just minutes to prepare.

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silpat and set aside.

In a heavy bottom or non-stick pan on medium low heat: Add the pecans, light brown sugar, butter, sea salt and 1 tablespoon of water.

As the sugar melts, the syrup will thicken, turning a rich caramelly brown color, approximately 3-4 minutes (keep a close eye, as this will burn quickly).

Transfer the candied pecans to the prepared sheet pan. Using the spatula, spread into a single layer so that the nuts are not sticking together in one big clump.

Once the candied pecans have cooled for a few minutes (about 5) and the sugar coating has completely hardened, you can break them apart with your fingers.

Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to a week.
