Spice it up a bit

These are pecans that I usually make at Christmas time, but I needed a batch for my salad yesterday.
They are quick and easy to whip up, and last a long time. I keep mine in a zip loc bag in the freezer.

Sweet and Spicy Pecans
2 Tbs karo syrup
1 Tbs sugar
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 1/2 cups pecan pieces
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Toss in pecan halves and allow to sit. Spread onto a cookie sheet and bake @ 325 for 10-15 minutes. Be careful not to burn.
These pecans have just a kick of spice and are good on ice cream, salads, or by the handful!
Y'all enjoy!

I'm impressed that you made your own spiced pecans, but since I took a bag out of my refrigerator, I can see the good idea in making a batch and tossing it the freezer. Thanks for the recipe.
