If you’re frightened to oven bake them, try out this crockpot candied pecans recipe!
Growing up, I loved eating candied pecans out of my grandma’s lap. I can’t say they are a healthy option, but boy, they’re so much pleasure.
You can’t go wrong when making up your Christmas cooking checklist to include these tried and true sugared pecans. Obviously, you may always use a cinnamon roasted peanut for the same effect, however, pecans are almost the perfect nut to enjoy while snacking ANYTIME.
When you make these candied pecans, you will wonder why you haven’t done it before. The only problem with making candied pecans, and that I mean this is that you will consume them daily. ALL DAY. My children snack on them; every time I walk , I grab a handful. I tried sealing up and placing on the counter, but I am helpless against just how delicious these are.
Let us get started on these candied pecans before I drool on myself.
Oven-Baked Candied Pecans
To begin, this is a super simple recipe using very few ingredients. It is hard to mess up these, and while they could take up to 45 minutes on low temps to finish up, they don’t require a lot out of you besides stirring. The glaze of this sugar and cinnamon harden in just the right away to make a deliciously sweet crust around the pecans.
When they are done baking, you may add into a snacking bowl, or in case you don’t eat all of them, serve them up in an conventional mason jar to hand out as presents. If you’re into food gifting, you should pair them with Candied Bacon.
They’re as expected, sweet and crunchy. I lined my pan with foil, but be sure when you flip the pecans; you aren’t ripping the foil if you dig to the pecans. You could eliminate the foil as it’s such a very low temp, the glucose won’t burn the pan. However, I like to keep clean up simple.
Beat egg and water white in a mixer for about 2-3 minutes until light and frothy, but not stiff. It kind of foams up.
Add pecans into egg mixture stirring to evenly coating, so the egg wash has around all sides of the pecans, which aids the sugar rod for coating.
Now pour sugar mixture over the pecans, stirring well to evenly coat, getting all sides.
Pour sugared pecans on a prepared baking sheet.
Spread pecans in one layer (or as best as possible), trying to be sure they aren’t stacked on top of one another. This also lets them bake evenly.
Toss in the oven and bake for 45- 60 minutes, then flipping with a spatula every 15 minutes. I simply put a timer on my cellphone, so I recalled when to flip. Let cool completely before serving (if you’re able to wait!)
Makes 2-1/2 cups of candied pecans.
If you are looking for more holiday desserts, here are a few right here on Salty Side Dish I adore:
- Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread — this can be produced with many different flavored rolls that bring up the autumn (I used pumpkin rolls!)
- Homemade Butter Mints — after-dinner mints which are often given out in weddings. Here are the more conventional cream cheese mints (, the bigger ones) if you want that.
- Blueberry Dump Cake — easy cake which you dump in a crockpot, warmth, then serve. Also, an apple version !
- Simple Fudge — I feel like the holidays are not complete without a load of chocolate fudge.

- Oreo Truffles — Truffles are Fantastic for each holiday and decorate for each season the way you want, recipe stays true
