These glazed pecans are coated with a buttery brown sugar syrup and then baked to crunchy perfection.

These candied pecans make a fabulous snack for holiday guests and parties. Or make up decorative containers with the pecans and give them as gifts.

What You'll Need

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons corn syrup(white, or Lyle's Golden Cane Syrup)
