Holiday Gift from your Kitchen: Pecans

Looking for an easy, delicious treat to give as party favors, to your neighbors, or to nibble on while waiting for Santa?  These delicious Pecans are the perfect holiday snack, so easy to make, and the most amazing blend of salt & sweet.  Make more than you think you will need… me.

You can wrap them up in a simple brown bag, embellished with ribbons, greenery, an ornament, or just a pretty tag, and give them out at the end of your holiday party.

Or arrange them in a white box {available at Joann’s. Michael’s, or many other stores especially for giving food gifts}, and add to a basket filled with goodies for a very generous gift!

These are so delicious! The perfect last minute gift you can make for everyone on your list.

    They are perfect for a salad. If you do make them, be sure to have other people there to eat them. :)
