Sweet & Spicy Pecans

spiced pecans

I can’t think of any party or event where nuts aren’t a welcome snack option. Not only are they good for you, they can be flavored in an endless number of ways from savory to sweet to spicy. This sweet & spicy pecan recipe is one of my favorites as it combines sweet and spicy with perfect balance.

Make a batch and set them out for showers, ladies nights, in addition to a popcorn bar or cheese spread…or just have them for an afternoon snack. I like using pecans for this but of course you could also use walnuts or almonds too.

Spicy Pecans

  • 4 cups whole pecans
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Wisk egg white in a bowl until foamy. Add pecan and stir to coat.

In a separate bowl combine sugars and spices. Add to pecans and stir to coat evenly.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spread pecans in a single layer.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, turning and stirring after 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool completely. Store in air tight container.
