It takes 5 minutes to turn regular pecans into sweet, crunchy, brown sugar-coated candied nuts.
Yield:1 1/2 cups pecans 1x
6 ounces (1 1/2 cups) pecans
3 3/4 ounces (1/2 cup, packed) brown sugar
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Toss pecans and brown sugar together in a large skillet. Set over stove on medium to medium-high heat and toss occasionally until the brown sugar begins to melt (this should only take a few minutes). At this point, toss/stir constantly and cook just until all of the nuts get coated in sugar and no more loose sugar remains. Remove from heat immediately to prevent burning and spread out on parchment-lined baking sheet to cool briefly before using.
