Candied Pecan Recipe


There’s nothing I love more than the Christmas season! Cason, my mom, and I spend countless hours in the kitchen (always with a glass of wine in hand) and it tends to be some of my most favorite moments together. One of our go-to holiday recipes is our family’s candied pecans. They are SO GOOD! The most difficult part of the recipe will be trying not to eat them all before serving!

These candied pecans are perfect for dividing into jars and gifting to friends, as party favors, and hostess gifts! They’re also amazing on salads- honestly the possibilities are endless. You can pair a batch of pecans with our holiday cocktail napkins and your next Christmas soirée is bound to be a hit!
