Spiced Candied Pecans

Another super simple dish that is sure to have your guests hooked. All you need for these spiced candied pecans are pecans, of course, confectioners’ sugar, salt, and cayenne pepper. whisk the confectioners’ sugar, salt, and cayenne pepper with 4 teaspoons of water and evenly coat the pecans and bake for 10-12 minutes until caramelized– easy as that!
