Honey-Pecan Candy

"This is one of those heaven-on-earth experiences. This recipe was taken from epicurious.com and was originally used as a pumpkin pie garnish....but it is so amazing and so easy by itself that I just HAD TO share it here! I think it would be a PERFECT addition to any holiday tray. CAUTION: This is very addictive. it is common to consume mass quantities in one sitting. be warned!! :)"

    great base, I felt it needed more salt... even though I used salted butter. I'm definitely making again, I might try with pistachios.
