Maple Pepper Pecans

maples pecans

Nick and I had a Housewarming party this past Saturday, which was a great success! I will be posting other items separately, but this is such a quick snack, and great for finger food / just having around for people to snack on. Be careful though -- they have quite a kick!


1/2 stick unsalted butter

1/2 cup maple syrup (I recommend good quality maple syrup)

1 1/2 teaspoons table salt

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

3 1/3 cups pecan halves


Melt the butter with the syrup, salt and cayenne pepper in a pan over a gentle heat. Add the pecans and stir to mix, leave them on the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Spread the pecans on a silicon pad, parchment paper, or piece of foil to cool. Arrange the sticky pecans in bowls to serve.
