Candied Pecans

Candied pecans are so easy to make and they’re perfect for holiday snacking or gift-giving. At Kitchen Kneads, we pride ourselves on high quality nuts. We sell what are called mammoth pecan halves and they’re called that for a reason: they’re large. Very large. They range in size from 1-inch to 1 1/2 inches. That makes for great presentation and wow factor.
