Candied Pecans


Candied Pecans

Candied pecans were always a treat whenever I would go shopping with my Grandma as a child. So I thought it would be a great idea to make this treat as a present for all of my family members for the holidays. What a success! Enjoy.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes ± added minutes to crisp the nuts

Oven Temp: 250°F


  • 1 – 1lb bag of halved pecans
  • 2 Egg whites
  • 3/4 Cups of white sugar
  • 3/4 cups of brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 250°F
  • Combine brown sugar, white sugar, salt and vanilla into a medium sized mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • Whisk the egg whites until frothy.
  • Pour egg whites over pecan halves in a separate mixing bowl.
  • Once all pecans are evenly coated, add the sugar mixture to the pecans.
  • Make sure a bulk of the sugar coats the pecans!
  • Spread the pecans onto a baking sheet.
  • Place the pecans into the oven for 15 minutes, and then flip the pecans to allow even baking.
  • *Continue this until the nuts are not glossy looking, and are nicely hardened…be careful though not to bake.
