So easy. So versatile. So addicting! Rich with pure maple syrup and a dusting of sea salt, these salty-sweet Salted Maple Pecans are the perfect garnish or treat. —tiffanythyme

  • Makes 1 cup
  • 1 cup pecans, whole or pieces
  • 1/4 cup 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
In This Recipe
  1. Preheat a non-stick pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the pecans, maple syrup, and vanilla to the pan.
  3. Stirring constantly, cook for 3-5 minutes or until the syrup has caramelized. There should be no liquid left in the pan.
  4. Scatter the pecans evenly onto a sheet of parchment paper. Working quickly and using a couple forks, spread the pecans so they don't clump together as they harden.
  5. These harden within about 30 minutes, but it's best to let them cool for a couple hours before storing them in an airtight container. When not kept in an airtight container, they can get a little sweaty. They can be kept at room temperature for several weeks.
