Saw someone make these on Oprah a few years back. It was a pretty quick segment so the instructions are a bit vague. I'm not very experienced with candied nuts so I winged it. Feel free to look at other people's instructions to compare! I toasted the pecans in a 13x9 inch Pyrex dish. I poured the syrups over the toasted pecans, stirred them up and baked them for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees. I checked them about every 5 minutes and stirred each time. They came out very sticky (like Rice Krispie Treats) so I don't know how the guy on Oprah rolled them in sugar while they were still hot! I put some sugar in the bottom of a glass bowl, put the pecans in the bowl and sprinkled more sugar on top. When they cooled, they broke apart easily. I couldn't taste the maple, but my fiance says he can...I might put a teaspoon of vanilla in if I ever attempt these again.
