crock pot candied pecans for gifting & enjoying

I have a really easy crock pot recipe for you today, which can also double as a great gift. 

I love the idea of sending dinner guests home with something. This recipe is perfect for that. 
These candied pecans would also be a really sweet house warming gift to give, or even a good teacher gift. 

I personally will be sending my family at Thanksgiving home with these candied pecans.

The presentation is so easy. 


You will only need a few things for this project/recipe.

Label maker

and of course, the recipe at the end of this post.

Cook the recipe according to directions and let the pecans cool.

Basically you throw a couple ingredients in a crockpot and walk away for 3 hours, how easy is that?

While the pecans are cooking and making your house smell delicious, prepare your jars.

I like to wash mine in hot water to sanitize before using. 

When they are fully dry, add your label to the jar. You can simply type out, "Candied Pecans" or make a more personal message. "Candied Pecans from the kitchen of...."

Fill your jar with the pecans and tie a ribbon around the top.

If you want, you can also place a message on the top of the jar. 

Super easy and whoever gets these as a gift will feel special that you went the extra mile to create something home made for them.
