April 18, 2017

This is a quick easy snack I have made for some parties and is adaptable to other types of nuts.  I chose pecans.

1 pound nuts (pecans)
2 tbs melted butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs light or dark brown sugar
OPTIONAL: 1/4 to 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper for extra spice


  1. Preheat oven to 325 deg F
  2. Toss pecans with melted butter and scatter on a 9×13-inch pan.
  3. Roast nuts in oven stirring once or twice until fragrant and golden about 12-15 min total time.
  4. Mix salt and sugar in a medium bowl, add hot pecans, and toss to evenly mix.
  5. Return nuts to baking pan and continue to roast to melt the sugar slightly about 3 minutes longer.
  6. Cool slightly before serving.
