Sugar Coated Pecans
I have a delicious family recipe for you!!! I had these for the first time this Thanksgiving and my aunt graciously shared her recipe with me. It is seriously pecan candy on steroids. Once you have one I promise you will want to eat the whole bowl. I’m not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing.. oh well it’s the holidays it’s time to be joyful and expand your waste line.
I think this is the perfect candy to bring to your holiday get together or to bring into the office to share with your coworkers. Everyone will love it and it will be the hit of the party. I shared my treats with a few of my girlfriends a couple weeks ago and they said I had to put the recipe on the blog. They are tough critics so I promise you guys will love it. As always, the recipes I share are pretty simple to make! If you decide to make this recipe please share on your Instagram stories and tag @mbbfreeman! Merry Christmas!
