Absolutely easy and delicious! I used brown sugar instead of regular sugar and had to triple the recipe for 2 lbs. of pecans. I will definitely be making these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
excellent but a little dry next time i'll add more coating. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good but for it to be 5 stars it needed just a touch more sugar - so I put 2 tablespoons instead of tsp. And I also made a batch for the adults with a pinch of cayenne pepper! Big hit! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So good!!! I took them to a Christmas party last year and have been asked for the recipe many times. One elderly lady confiscated the entire tin and called them her own. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was given this recipe by a friend. I made them and now I can't keep them in the house. People at work ask me to bring them in all the time. The only thing I have done diffreant, I added more cinnamon. I have doubled the amount. It gives a very fall taste. I will be making up small bags and hanging them on the Christmas tree this year instead of candy canes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I gave this recipe 4 stars only because I used the exact amount of ingredients for one pound of pecans and I only made 1/2 pound bag and it was perfect. Not too sweet and you can taste a hint of cinnamon. Very addicting! Thanks Paula, great snack instead of the usual chips and such. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just want to start off by saying that I love Paula & the Deen boys and love watching Paula's show! Made these for the first time at Christmas for several family gatherings. They were a huge hit! My family actually fought over them! The only thing I did different was use an artificial sweetner instead of the sugar. They were wondferul!!!!!! Keep cranking out those wonderful recipes, Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made these for the first time for a gathering at a friends for Christmas. Even after all the main dishes were gone, people were still eating these, grabbing them out of the bowl, and you should have heard the comments. "These are so good." These are addictive!" "I just can't stop eating these." I made the topping just a little bit on the heavy side - not doubling it but just adding heaping measurements of everything - and these turned out not too sweet but just right. Thanks, Paula, you are a sweetheart! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these for Christmas snacks. I made 2 batches, one just with pecans, the second I added almonds and peanuts. The flavor is absolutely excellent. If you are looking for a "candy", this is not that recipe. There is a perfect mix of sweet and salty along with the roasted nut flavor. Great for munching or with salads. Definitely will save this for future use. Yum Paula item not reviewed by moderator and published
It wasn't sweet like cinnamon toast. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Let me start by saying that I love Paula Deen and her recipes, normally. But, this was just terrible. They lacked flavor. I ended up adding brown sugar with melted butter to try and salvage the 4 cups of pecans. My husband says he likes them, but not at all what we expected. Will stick to her Pecan Praline Morsels in the future. Those are delicious!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made these b4 I read the reviews....they were good but next time I'll use brown sugar...and there will definately be a next time! We ate them all at one sitting! item not reviewed by moderator and published
For my first time making this recipe I decided to use dark brown sugar. I used a full tablespoon. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Loved the scrumptious taste that wasn't too sweet like pecan pie is for me ! I did use the full 4 cups of nuts. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make all kinds of sweet nuts. Although I've not tried this recipe yet (but will soon) I was skeptical when I read 4 cups of pecans for such little liquids & sugar. I really believe the 4 cups is a misprint. After reading the reviews, I thiink I'd, at the very least, double (even maybe triple) the other ingredients! I also watched her make them today on tv, and clearly she didn't add 4 cups. Looked more like 2 cups to me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I can't believe I'm giving Paula one star, as she normally gets 5 stars, but there was no taste. Just 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 2 tsp sugar for a pound of pecans? Turned out just like I thought - tasteless. I followed the recipe but should have trusted my gut that these would taste like roasted pecans with no sweet or cinnamon taste. I just ruined a pound of pecans. And thanks to the other reviewers who gave 5 stars after having to amp up the recipe. The rating led me to believe it was good the way it was. Guess I should have read them too instead of looking at the stars. Oh well. Live and learn. Still love ya, Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were soooo easy to make....and I tripled the recipe. I did add some extra cinnamon and sugar, just threw some extra in, otherwise I don't think they would have been sweet enough for our taste. I will definently make these again! Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
need I say more? ok AWESOME item not reviewed by moderator and published
My dad loves this recipe! I make it for him every time we see him. He leaves the empty containers on my front porch when he wants them filled again! My fiance feels left out because he doesn't get them as much! I do add more sugar to make them a bit sweeter. item not reviewed by moderator and published
They could use a touch more sweet. Just a touch. Otherwise they were soooo easy to make and came out perfectly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I changed the recipe quite a bit and doubled everything except for the nuts. I used 2 TBS honey 1TBS maple syrup and 1TBS corn syrup. I also used a pinch of cayenne pepper. I didn't have enough pecans, so I used an equal mix of almonds and pecans- I think any nut will do and you could probably make another mix of the sauce and put it on popped popcorn too. Great recipe! Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fast, tasty...a huge crowd pleaser. goes well at any party. Can not get much easier! Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe was so easy to make! I could easily prepare other dishes while fininshing this one as well. When finished, the pecans almost taste like having a bit of pecan pie!

Thanks for an awesome recipe Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published

These nuts are crispy and cinnamony. They store nicely in the refridgerator or the freezer. Can't tell you about freezer life. These nuts are too good to have a long life. Satisfying snack. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I was really disappointed. The pecans don't have much flavor. They need more of something, maybe sugar or salt. I usually love what Paula makes, so this was a surprise to me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
