Spiced Pecans

These are a great bar snack or accompanyment to an appetizer buffet. I made a big tray for a party Corey and I are having this weekend. These are sure to go fast and watch out! They are spicy.



  • 4 c. pecan halves
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. chili paste (check the imported section of your grocery store)
  • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 4 tsp. salt, divided


1. Combine all ingredients except for salt in a large mixing bowl. Add 3 tsp. salt.

2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

3. Line a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan (preferred) with parchment paper. Spread nuts in a single layer on parchment paper.

4. Bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes. Let cool and store in a cool, dry environment (such as a metal tin or glass jar). Plastic containers are not recommended for storage - they may soften your pecans.
