How to Sugar Coated Pecans (Candied Pecans)

Sugar Coated Pecans are a wonderful holiday treat…. and so easy to make… and far less expensive to do it yourself. They also make a terrific gift.


Use non-stick foil to line your baking sheet… it will help the pecans not stick to the pan and clean-up will be infinitely easier. However, still grease the foil.

Mix the sugar, cinnamon and salt with a wire whisk to blend the ingredients evenly.

Put them out to snack on or use them to garnish desserts… everyone will love them.

Recipe: How to Sugar Coat Pecans (Candied Pecans)

All you need:

1 pound pecans
2 egg whites
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 ½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt

All you have to do:

Preheat oven to 225 degrees F.

Line a baking sheet with non-stick foil.

Grease the foil lightly.

Beat the egg whites with the vanilla until frothy.

Mix the cinnamon, sugar, and salt in a large bowl or pie plate.

Add the pecans to the egg white mixture and stir to coat them well.

Then remove the pecans with a slotted spoon and add them to the sugar mixture. Toss well after each addition to coat them well.

Spread them out on the baking sheet and bake at 225 degrees F for 30 minutes.

Stir to loosen and allow to cool until you're able to handle them, about 10 minutes.

Store in an air tight container.
