Eierlikör & Honey Toasted Pecans

With the holidays over (and probably STILL leftovers in the freezer) everyone has probably quite enough of lots and lots of food. What i need now is Something to snack on during the day. Something delicious that won`t make you feel stuffed. The Solution: Pecans (rather healthy and filling) + Honey (for my sweet tooth) = AWESOME! The best part? They are sooo easy to make.

I made these Toasted Pecans for Christmas and put them in little mason jars, and everybody loved them.

Eierlikör & Honey Toasted Pecans

Ingredients


  • 1/2 cup (170g) honey
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup Eierlikör* 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups (150g) pecans
  • Cinnamon (optional)


Instructions


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium saucepan, stir together honey, granulated sugar, Eierlikör and salt. Cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes, or until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a slow boil.
  3. Add pecans and stir to coat. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring, until syrup begins to bubble up and turn a light brown in color.
  4. Remove from heat. Optional: drain liquid through a strainer if you see any lumps.
  5. Place coated pecans onto parchment paper in a single layer, separating as much as possible. (You can wear Rubber gloves to separate them better with your hands. but they are still VERY HOT)
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes (watch closely so they don`t burn).
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool on cookie sheet.
  8. Optional: Before they`re completely cooled, lightly sprinkle Pecans with Cinnamon for a more festive taste.
  9. Once cooled, separate pecans from each other and use to top salad, stir into yogurt or as delicious snack.


*If you can`t find Eierlikör, a suitable substitute would be Eggnog. Or basically almost any liquor would be ok.
