      Totally awesome!!! I made 2 pounds in 2 days and they disappeared. I also made them for a bridal shower and everyone wanted the recipe. We like them best made with 1/2 brown and 1/2 regular sugar and about 1/2 tsp of vanilla as some suggested. I have made numerous times and we love them. The only problem I have is I eat way too many when I make them.

      These were fantastic!!!! I made several batches for Christmas gifts, but now have to make more because we ate quite a few and have expanded our receiver list because they are so tasty and so easy! I used a mixture of Pecans, Almonds, Walnuts, Cashews and Pistachios (all raw to begin with). I also added a tsp of cayenne for a little kick. Thank you for such a great and easy recipe. UPDATE: I gave these out at work and to friends and people were calling them their drug because they couldn't stop eating them. I have been requested to make them again this year and so I am now working on my first of another 10 batches. :-) I would highly recommend adding the cayenne as it gave it a sweet/hot taste that was irresistible. Also having a mix of nuts made it interesting.

      YUM! Thank you, Kim, for posting this recipe! These pecans are really delicious. I got several pounds of pecans from my friend in LA who has pecan trees so my pecans were really fresh. I made this recipe for Christmas gifts. I put them in TupperWare Roc&Serv containers with a ribbon around them and everyone LOVED the pecans! I have directed MANY FOLKS to Recipezaar and this page! My hubby and I are are addicted to these! He asked me to always have them around. They really are delicious!!!!! THANK YOU!!! I shall use this receipe for years to come and many gifts! And I love that it's not messy to make like the sugared pecans with corn syrup!
