Candied pecans are my jam. I could eat them by the handfuls till my stomach hurt and then ear more. They are addictive. It started with Cinnamon Candied Pecans and I just keep building on that recipe with different spices.

I honestly can’t believe how easy candied pecans are to make. Literally, the most intense thing is whisking the egg whites to a foamy and frothy consistency. And I’ll share a secret, use a battery-powered frother! So easy and so fast.

This recipe calls for Gingerbread Spice, which you can buy but is super easy to make. This is my homemade gingerbread spice mix recipe that I love to keep around during the holiday season and is simple to make.

Recipe Tips:

  • This recipe is easily doubled and makes a great homemade gift.
  • Store in an airtight container to keep them fresh all season long.
  • I won’t lie these are coated in sugar, a lot of sugar. If you were inclined you could cut the sugar back a bit, but I’ll be honest the sugar is good!
  • These need stirred every 15 minutes while in the oven, believe me, it’s worth it!
  • Not a pecan fan? Try mixed nuts or cashews or walnuts!

Gingerbread Candied Pecans

Pecan halves roasted in sugar, spices and an egg white make a tasty holiday treat.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 egg white
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons gingerbread spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions
 

  • In a small bowl combine the brown and white sugar, gingerbread spice and salt. Stir until well combined.
  • In a large enough bowl to hold all the pecan halves - first add the egg white, then whisk until foamy and frothy.
  • Add the pecans to the frothy egg white and stir to coat all the nuts.
  • Add the sugar mixture to the bowl with the coated pecans and stir to coat all the pecans really good.
  • Pour the coated pecans on a parchment lined large cookie sheet and spread out in a single layer.
  • Bake in a pre-heated 250° oven for 46-60 minutes. Stir nuts every 15 minutes and closely watch them for how brown they are getting and how dry. Mine took 45 minutes, but every oven is different.
