Yummy Homemade Maple Glazed Pecans

Yummy maple glazed pecans are so delicious. This is a candy, so we want to just eat a few. The good news is that it uses a small amount of maple syrup instead of lots of sugar.

Exotic pecans are for sure one of my favourite nuts and they make a wonderful present. This is a very easy recipe to make and much healthier than the ones filled with white sugar.

Maple Glazed Pecans Recipe

1. Add pecans to a dry frying pan and toast until lightly browned over a medium flame for 3-4 minutes, always stirring.
