These are easy to whip up and have a great flavor. They are sweet, but not too sweet and I love the crunchy coating on them. I made a half batch which I am glad I did because I cannot stop eating these!! Made for Photo Tag.

I had a bag of pecans laying around. I followed the recipe as written other then I used splenda for the sugar as that is all I buy. I also added more then I dash of cinnamon, probably around 1/4 teaspoon. I also didn't add the dash of salt. These were good and easy to make. I am snacking on them now!
