  1. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugars, water, honey and cinnamon. Bring to a boil over medium heat; do not stir. Cook over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 240 degrees F (soft-ball stage). Remove from the heat; add extracts. Cool to lukewarm without stirring.
  2. Beat with a mixer for 2-3 minutes or until creamy. Stir in pecans until coated. Turn onto waxed paper (mixture will be sticky); separate large clumps. Cool for several hours or until dry and sugary. Store in an airtight container.

I made a test batch of these this afternoon. Soooo addictive! I made 1/4 of the recipe. Don't have a candy thermometer so I did the soft ball in water test. All that being said. I have to get...

These are the best candied pecans I've ever made. Thanks for the great recipe! If you add additional water, then it becomes a glaze, but I don't recommend it...although the taste is the same the...

These came out good, but they are so rich that you can't eat a lot. I think that this would be a great snack for the hollidays.

Mine are not done cooling/drying but the mixture is very good. I was looking for a recipe for the single praline pecans that you buy in the store not clumps. I ended up using the two full pounds...

tasted really good. I did not have rum extract so I substituted 1 tsp rum instead. The only thing I did not like about this recipe was the pecans sort of "clumped" together a little. However, I ...
