Candied Pecan Nuts

These candied pecans make a perfect treat for Christmas and when beautifully wrapped, are a simple and cost effective Christmas gift.


  • 175g pecans

  • 60g sugar

  • caster sugar to sprinkle 

Preheat oven to 180C. Spread pecans on a baking sheet and bake for about five minutes, being careful not to burn them, then set aside. Melt the sugar in a saucepan until it turns a light golden brown. Remove from heat and add the pecan immediately. Coat evenly and pour on to a piece of baking paper. Quickly separate and allow to cool. Just before they’re fully cooled, dust with caster sugar.
