Spiced Pecans Recipe

Spiced Pecans

Y’all know that looks good!  I hate pralines, but I love spiced pecans!  They are so yummy that when I make a batch, they are gone within a day or two.

This recipe comes from my Grandmother’s kitchen.  She has made them at Christmas, for as long as I can remember!  These, Irish Potato Candy, and Divinity are my absolute favorite homemade candies.  Do you have a favorite candy?
