Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pecans in a bowl. Heat granulated sugar and the water in a saucepan, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Pour syrup over pecans, and toss. Sprinkle sanding sugar over pecans, and toss. Using a slotted spoon, spread nuts on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

  • Bake, stirring occasionally, until pecans are toasted and dry, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool completely. Candied pecans can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
