These 3-ingredient Maple Pecans are an easy treat to add to salads or casseroles, or even for snacking on their own.
1cupraw pecan halves
2tablespoonspure maple syrup
In a dry nonstick skillet, add the pecans and turn the heat to medium.
Toast the pecans for about 5 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. You should start to smell the fragrance of the pecans as you toast them.
Add the maple syrup to the pecans, then quickly stir to coat the pecans evenly.
Add the salt, and keep stirring and cooking for about 2-3 minutes. At first the pecans will look glazed and sticky, but then the maple will start to crystallize and have that classic candied crunchy texture.
Let the pecans cool completely, and enjoy!
Feel free to use infused maple syrups here, or to add spices like cinnamon, cayenne, cardamom, cloves, etc.
