I have made this in the past and they came out wonderful! Delicious...almost too delicious. I recently followed an easier recipe. Pecans (2Cups), Confectioners sugar (1/2C), cayenne pepper (1/2 tsp), water (4tsp). Mix sugar, cayenne pepper, pecans. Add water and mix till sugar is gone and it's all liquid. Pour onto Parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Done. Take the parchment paper off of cookie sheet as soon as it comes out of the oven. Break up the candied pieces when cooled and store in an air-tight bag. I left kosher salt out of the recipe. I don't find it adds much and don't need the salt but you may find it's missing.
You don't notice the cayenne pepper while eating it...at all. But as soon as you have swallowed it, you know it was there. I don't like hot and this is fine for me. Delicious.
