Ingredients
For the Candied Pecans:
  • 1/2 cup(s) powdered sugar
  • 4 teaspoon(s) water
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 2 cup(s) pecans
For the Snowy Coating:
  • 1/2 cup(s) powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
Instructions
  • Preheat your oven to 350℉ (180℃). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the powdered sugar, water, cinnamon, and salt. Add the pecans and mix well until the pecans are evenly coated.
  • Pour the pecans onto the prepared baking sheet and spread out as much as possible. Drizzle over any remaining sugar mixture. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes until the sugar is a rich golden brown. Make sure to keep a close eye on them so they don't burn. Remove from the oven, and allow them to cool for about 5 minutes until they are safe to handle, but still warm. If your pecans are sticky (and not crunchy), this means they haven't baked long enough. Before coating them in the powdered sugar, simply pop them back in the oven for a few more minutes, keeping a close eye on them so that they don't burn. 
    Note: If you want plain candied pecans without the snowy coating, stop here, let them cool, then break apart and use them as desired.
  • Make the snowy coating by mixing the powdered sugar and cinnamon in a large sealable bag or large clean and dry bowl.
  • Add the still warm pecans to the snowy coating and shake the bag or use a spoon to evenly coat them in the sugar mixture. Transfer to a dish or container discarding any extra powdered sugar left behind. Enjoy right away or store the cooled pecans in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 1 month.
