I feel like its really not the holidays without some candied nuts around. Plus we make these for salads too. They are so easy, and delicious!
You take 1-2 cups of pecans and put them in a small sauce pan with 1 cup of sugar and 1/3 cup of water.
Stir to dissolve the sugar and bring to a simmer.
Simmer 5-7 minutes. After awhile the liquid will dissolve the pecans will start to get a candy coating on them at this point add 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
Keep stirring until completely coated. If they are runny at all they aren’t done yet.
