Autumn Spiced Candied Pecans

1 cup pecans

1/2 cup sugar

1 TBSP Spice by Rachel Sweet PUMPKIN SPICE MIX


Lay out parchment or wax paper on a counter top or plate. Add the pecans and the sugar to a pan and turn heat to medium. It will take a few minutes for the sugar to get hot enough to melt. Stick around because it is very easy to overcook! Once the sugar starts turning to liquid, stir constantly to keep coating the pecans. Use a silicone spatula because it cleans easily.


When all the sugar has melted, shut the heat off. Add the tablespoon of PUMPKIN SPICE MIX to the hot pan and stir well for almost a full minute. Once the mix has covered all the nuts, dump them out onto the laid out parchment or wax paper. BE CAREFUL! Touching hot sugar can hurt - a lot! Use the spatula to separate the nuts from each other as best as you can before they cool and harden into a lump. Let them sit a few minutes to cool completely before trying a taste. Soak the pan in water - the sugar will melt off easily for cleaning.


Enjoy!
