Kahlua Spiked Pecans

You HAVE to make these!! I am giving them as a hostess gift on Christmas Eve, but I wish I was keeping them all! This recipe was taken from a food blog called Culinary in the Desert.



1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg white
3 tablespoons Kahlua
4 cups pecan halves


1. Preheat oven to 325F
2. In a small bowl, whisk together sugar, cinnamon and salt.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together egg white and Kahlua. Add pecans and stir well to combine.
4. Sprinkle half the sugar mixture on top and mix well. Pour the rest of the sugar on top and stir until completely combined. Scoop the mixture onto a large baking sheet lined with foil and coated with nonstick spray. Spread the pecans to an even single layer.
5. Bake until pecans are lightly toasted and browned, stirring every 10 minutes, about 20 to 25 minutes total. Remove from the oven and scoop the hot pecans onto wax or parchment paper to cool completely.
