Fried Candied Pecans-dip them in chocolate for even more deliciousness!
- 4 cups pecans
- oil for frying
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- Sea salt
- In a medium pan, fill with oil about 2 inches deep. Heat over medium low.
- Blanche your pecans. Fill a large pot halfway full with water. Bring to a boil and add pecans. Boil pecans for one minute then drain in a strainer. Rinse pecans with hot water.
- Once pecans are rinsed, toss hot pecans in sugar to coat.
- Fry pecans in oil heated to 350 degrees for about 4 minutes. Remove from oil to drain on a rack above paper towels. (pecans will stick if placed directly on the paper towels.) Salt to taste.
And if you really want to take Fried Pecans to a new level, dip them in some chocolate. I just used chocolate bark.
