Candied Pecans on the Stovetop – 4 Easy Steps!

This recipe explains how to make caramelized pecans on the stovetop. However, I include the oven recipe suggestion as well since so many people have asked. Either way, they turn out great!




  1. Add your brown sugar, butter, water, cinnamon and salt to a large sauté pan.
  2. Mix your ingredients over medium-low heat and mix in your pecans.
  3. Cook and toss for 15 minutes.
  4. Pour onto a sheet on parchment paper to cool and enjoy.
