Homemade Candied Pecans

Homemade Candied Pecans

I have always loooooved candied nuts. However, I don’t eat them very often because I really can’t afford them. ๐Ÿ˜‚

That’s why I was excited when my mom sent me a pin on Pinterest that linked to homemadeย candied pecans. I made them as soon as I could, and they are absolutely delicious!

What’s great about this treat is that if you already have sugar, cinnamon, salt, and an egg on hand, all you need to buy are the pecans! It calls for 4 cups, but you can easily half it if you aren’t planning on serving a large, pecan-loving family. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Please tell me if you decide to make it! Here’s the recipe! ๐Ÿ’œ


{Candied Pecans}


4 cups pecan halves

1 large egg white

1 Tbsp water

1 cup granulated sugar

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt



1. Preheat the oven to 300ยฐF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil.

2. In a large bowl, pour in the pecans. In another bowl, whisk together the egg white and the water until they’re blended. Pour the mixture over the pecans and stir until they all have an even coating.

3. In another bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Pour over the pecans and stir until they’re all evenly coated.

4. Spread them onto the baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 45 minutes, stirring the pecans every 15 minutes.

5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

Enjoy! ๐Ÿ’š

    1. You should!! They’re delicious, and they make the kitchen smell amazing. Haha well so far, I’ve only shared two other recipes on here: one for a blueberry cake, and the other for homemade soft pretzels. ๐Ÿ˜Š

      1. Next time, I’m going to half the recipe, because I’d rather not have four cups of Candied Pecans sitting around the house (specifically, in my room, for protection from everyone else) tempting me! ๐Ÿ˜‚

      2. LOL True. Two cups isn’t bad but I don’t think Mr. C will be able to eat them and two cups is too much for me. Well, I should say I shouldn’t eat two cups because I know I could!


  1. Oh my Goodness Maggie, these look and sound divine!!!! I try not to make stuff like this but once and a while, and I just yesterday made monkey bread. BUT I will be making these, in the future, and when I do I will let you know!! Thanks for the recipe!
