Holiday Maple Spiced Pecans

Dec 08, 2015

Every December, I try to find new ways to make spiced nuts. They are the perfect snack during the holidays, and they also make wonderful homemade holiday gifts. What I love about these Maple Spiced Pecans is that there is no butter needed. Store in a Ziploc® Brand Holiday Container for up to one week. Feel free to double or triple this recipe if you’re having company over (or if you’re like me, and your kids love pecans). Also try this recipe using cayenne and smoked paprika if you want to spice it up.
