Candied Pecans

Get ready to make a double batch of these Candied Pecans. They are that good, and easy to make, so why not make a triple batch?

Candied Pecans

I use these Candied Pecans in my cakes and pancakes but they are also great all on their own. Just try not to eat them all in one sitting.
