These quick candied pecans make a great salad topper, chicken salad addition or quick snack! For the mamas that get tired of eating so much or so often, these are good because the serving size is small.

I make these in big batches and keep in a jar or Tupperware on the counter. My family and I eat them pretty much whenever we see them. Even my one-and-a-half year-old loves them. I find them to be particularly great when I’m still cooking but a little hungry and need something to get me through.

To make it Keto or Paleo, switch out the brown sugar for coconut sugar.
Make a big batch to keep on hand!
