Candied Kahlua Pecans
Posted by Caveman Cooking on May 11, 2010
1 Cup Whole Pecan Pieces
1 Tbsp Butter
1.5 Tsp White Sugar
2 Tsp Brown Sugar
1 Shot (1.5 oz.) Kahlua
In a medium-large non-stick skillet melt the butter over a medium-high flame. If using a traditional pan add another tablespoon of butter.
Evenly sprinkle both sugars over pecans.
Stir and flip pecans until all are fully and evenly coated in butter and sugars. Saute for another 3-4 minutes taking care not to burn the nuts. (Yes, I’ve been dying to say that! :lol:)
Just before they are done, add the Kahlua, carefully flambe, and then quickly saute until caramelized. No more than 30-60 seconds.
Remove from heat and place on a plate to cool. Use, munch, or store in an airtight container until ready to use … it will last about a week in the fridge.
HINT: I know you are going to want to try one right away. But, unless you are from the Marquis de Sade school of cooking, let them cool sufficiently. Anything “candied” gets very hot!
I told you these were easy! 😉
