Sugared Pecans

Need a quick and easy gift idea?
How about making some sugared pecans!
It's what we gave our teachers this week, for Teacher Appreciation Day.
My recipe is so simple and quick!
No need to use egg whites like most recipes suggest.

Sugared Pecans

1/3 C sugar
2 Tbsp water
1 C pecans

Combine sugar and water in skillet, stir until sugar is dissolved. Add pecans. Stir continuously over medium high to high heat until sugar turns white and coats the pecans. Cool on waxed paper.

Fill a bag, tie on a ribbon, attach a tag, and you'll have a sweet handmade gift in no time!

Sugared pecans are so tasty in salad, but we like them best, straight out of the bag!
