- 200g pecans
- 100g caster sugar
Timing: 15 mins
These wonderful crunchy delights are amazing in cakes, on salads, over oats/yoghurt, or just as a snack.
In a wide pan, sprinkle the sugar over the base in an even layer. Prepare a piece of baking paper/silpat mat on a board.
Over a medium heat, allow the sugar to start to melt, undisturbed.
When the sugar has turned to liquid and started to darken in colour, add the nuts and use a silicone spatula to coat them.
When the nuts are covered, immediately pour out on to the paper/mat and leave to harden & cool.
*tip to clean your pan: add an inch of water to the pan and leave to boil – the remaining sugar will melt and dissolve in the pan so you don’t have to scrub it off.
