Simple Candied Pecans

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Blain

Great candied pecans to put out during the holidays. Got this recipe from my mom. Not sure where it came from originally. I really like that this recipe doesn't call for any margarine or butter. It's bad enough that I'll sit down and eat handfuls of these...the least I could do is skip the butter too. :)

These were good and easy to make. I love pecans and this recipe made them very tasty. I followed the recipe as written other then I used Splenda instead of sugar as that is all I buy. I also didn't add the salt. Made for Spring PAC 2009.
