You never know when you’re going to need candied pecans. They come in handy as a topping on ice cream or on top of yams for any holiday you’d like. This recipe isn’t hard to follow and results in delicious candied pecans.


  • 1 egg white
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 cups pecans


  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F and line a baking sheet (or two) with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg white until foamy.
  3. Add vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and salt to the egg white and whisk until well incorporated.
  4. Add the pecans and mix well, making sure each and every pecan is well coated.
  5. Using a fork, transfer the pecans onto the parchment-lined baking sheet, being sure not to transfer excess mixture with them. Also make sure the pecans are separated on the sheet and do not bunch together.
