Candied Pecans (for deviled eggs)

 On Thanksgiving I mentioned my favorite way to eat deviled eggs... with some fresh dill and a candied pecan and wanted to share how I make them so you can add these to your Christmas party menu.

What You'll Need...
- 6 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 tablespoons water
- 2 cups pecan halves

What You'll Do...
Step 1) Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

Step 2) Put the brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, vanilla, and water to a medium skillet.  Place the skillet over medium heat and cook, stirring often until the brown sugar melts until a bubbling sauce.

Step 3) Stir in the pecans so that the brown sugar sauce coats them.  Cook, stirring constantly, until the pecans start to smell nutty (3 minutes or so).  

Step 4) Transfer the coated pecans to the parchment-lined baking sheet and spread them into a single payer.  Allow the pecans to cool.

Step 5) Pop one pecan into each deviled eggs (find my favorite recipe HERE) and top each one with a piece of fresh dill.

JUST TRUST ME and give these a try.  For me, the more dill the better!

If you're not a big deviled egg fan the pecans are DELICIOUS on their own and would be a great addition to a holiday charcuterie board.  If you try them in a deviled egg I want to know what you think!  

HAPPY Thursday, friends!!!
