These are clean but ummmm maybe not the healthiest option 😉 it's all about moderation and if you choose the right ingredients you can still create a great CLEAN candied nut!
Candied Pecans are a great topping for salads, main dishes, and desserts! They are also good eaten by the handful and make a great gift during the holiday months! We often find it a perfect gift for teachers 👩🏫 and you can even mix it with kettle cooked popcorn to increase the number of gifts it will make! You can find cute little containers at Dollar Store, Hobby Lobby or even Big Lots!
Check out the recipe below!
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
16 ounces (about 4 cups) unsalted pecans halves
1 egg white
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. In a medium bowl, add sugars, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk until combined. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, whisk the egg white, vanilla together until frothy. Add the pecans and gently toss until the pecans are well coated. Add the sugar and cinnamon mixture and toss until pecans are covered.
3. Put in crockpot at low for 3 hours tossing occasionally.
4. Remove from the crockpot and let the pecans cool on the baking sheet. When completely cool, store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
