Easy, quick, sweet, spicy and delicious - what's not to like? I did kick up the heat because I like spicy snacks. I used 3/4 teaspoon cayenne. And I lined my jelly roll pan with parchment which not only made clean up easy, but made it easy to roll the pecans around to coat them.

Husband loved them, but requested that next time I make them a bit hotter - will do! Thank you for posing.

These are very good. My first instinct was to make them HOTTER! but these are not for me they are for others so I left thwem as is, perfect. Slight heat at the very end of the bite.
