Homemade Nutcracker Sweets

Salty loves its sweet, and that’s what you get with sugar coated nuts.

Amy Richardson shares a new take on a Christmas tradition of candied nuts.
Sugar Plum Pecans
2 cups pecan halves
1/4 cup Torani Blackberry Syrup
1/4 cup Torani French Vanilla Syrup
White sanding sugar

Place nuts into roasting pan. Pour syrups over the top and stir to coat. While stirring slowly and constantly, cook over medium heat until syrup is almost absorbed and thickened. Quickly pour nuts onto parchment paper. Sprinkle generously with sanding sugar. And separate nuts with a wooden spoon. Cool completely.
Store in a covered container.
