  • About


  • ¼ cup chopped pecans or shelled roasted pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon dark or light brown sugar


In a nonstick skillet, combine the pecans, sugar, water, salt, and spice mixture. Cook over medium heat until the sugar melts and thickens, stirring often. It will take very little time. Transfer to a bowl and separate the nuts as the caramel cools and hardens.
