Sweet & Spicy Pecans

Little Bottles Spice Co

This is a holiday favorite and one every hostess loves to receive. As with other recipes, if you want more intense heat, feel free to add more spice. We use Vermont Maple Syrup because…well, we live in Vermont and think it’s the best!


2 cups of raw pecans (halves)

1/2 cup of Vermont Maple Syrup

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon of butter

1 tablespoon of THE ORIGINAL

1/4 teaspoon of salt


Combine syrup, sugar, butter and salt in a sauce pan. Bring to boil over a medium high heat. Lower to medium and simmer until it thickens, approximately 3 minutes. Stir in spice and remove from heat and cool slightly.

Place pecans in a bowl. Pour syrup mixture over nuts and stir until they are all coated. Place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, making sure they are all separated. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, checking to make sure the nuts do not burn. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet. Store in airtight container.
