Maple Pepper 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.
