Next Sunday is SuperBowl Sunday and I know many of you will be having lots of friends over to watch the game or going to a friends house. Whether you’re cooking for a crowd or bringing a dish to your friends here’s a great snack that everyone’s sure to love.
So in addition to my “Quick and Savory Chili” for SuperBowl Sunday, here are my “Candied Pecans”. Serve them as snack food; in your salads or as a topping for desserts. They are sure to please everyone that nibbles on them!
1 cup sugar 1/2 cup water 1 tsp ground cinnamon Dash of ground cloves 2 cups pecan halves ( I use roasted pecans that I purchase at The Wine & Cheese Place) 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves, stirring constantly (about 8-10 minutes).
Add pecans and vanilla, cook until all syrup is absorbed and pecans are coated, stirring constantly (about 12 minutes – will look powdery).
Spread pecan mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment. (Pecans will have a sugar coating)
