Daphne Oz shares the easiest recipe for candied pecans (only 3 ingredients and you probably already have all of them sitting in your pantry!).

Daphne uses them to top her Pecan Pie Pudding—but we also love setting them out as a sweet snack during the holidays. Plus, they make a lovely DIY gift.


  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


Toast the pecans in a dry nonstick skillet over medium heat until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the maple syrup and sprinkle with sugar, then stir to combine and season with salt. Once sugar dissolves, remove from heat and let cool completely.
