Love these pecans. I keep a tin of them around all the time to add to salads (along with shaved parmesan cheese and dried cranberries...) or to serve as a nibble for impromptu guests. Great recipe. They last in an air tight container for months!

These are FABULOUS! I made them for Christmas and have two batches in the oven for New Year's Eve. They are VERY easy to make. I do have a few suggestions. If you purchase your pecans in a 1 lb. bag, it works better to use 1/3 c. each of the corn syrup and pure maple syrup. Either way, after step 9, alternate pouring some of the nuts into a bowl with sprinkling in some of the sugar mixture. It covers the nuts much better to sprinkle them as you pour the nuts in. They are JUST FABULOUS! Thank you for the recipe!
