- 1 cup whole pecans
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 tablespoons corn syrup
Crunchy. Sweet. Perfect.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Set aside. Combine sugar and corn syrup in a medium skillet. Add pecans and stir until pecans are coated. Cook over medium heat, continuously stirring with a wooden spoon or heat resistant (silicone) spatula until sugar coating begins to brown slightly, being careful not to burn the sugar. Immediately turn pecans onto prepared baking sheet, spreading and separating with the wooden spoon or heat resistant spatula. When the pecans are completely cooled break apart any large clumps of pecans. Serve in salads or as a snack.
