These toasted pecans are covered with a sweet and crispy coating that is bursting with the flavors of gingerbread. Cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and a hint of molasses! Perfect for your next holiday party!



2 lbs pecans

2 teaspoons molasses

2 cups light brown sugar

2 teaspoons ground ginger

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper

1/4 cup water


Preheat oven to 200F.

Place a silicone baking sheet or a layer of foil on a baking pan. Be sure to spray the foil with non-stick spray. The silicone baking sheet needs no prep.

Combine all the ingredients, except the pecans in a mixing bowl.

Stir to make sure all ingredients are fully incorporated.

Toss in your pecans and mix to coat the nuts. This is a messy step!

Place your coated pecans in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake in the oven for 1 hour at 200F, stirring every 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven when finished and cool.

Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
