Spiced Pecans

A close friend makes these every year, and they are so tasty that the husband and I need our own jars, because there's no sharing - they're just that good. They also go really well with a pre-dinner cocktail, which makes them even more irresistible. 

A few years back, she shared the recipe with me, and now there's no holding back. It's a Christmas miracle if they last more than 3 or 4 days before disappearing, especially since the boy loves them too. 

They are so simple and easy to make, that I thought I'd share the recipe so everyone can enjoy the deliciousness that is spiced pecans!
