Can you believe Christmas is only a week away? Are you ready? Have you finished your shopping? Your wrapping? Your meal planning??

Last year we spent the holiday in Key West. My son was deployed, and in an effort to change things up, we went away over the holidays. It was so stress free! We took the kids’ gifts with us, and decorated our hotel room for Christmas. Then enjoyed the sunshine on a day when we are normally freezing, haha!

This year, I’ve got all my kids coming home. It’s funny when you enter a new phase in life, and learn to appreciate small things. Like, requests from the kids for specific meals and snacks while they are home for the holidays.

One thing my kids love is roasted, sugar pecans. I only make them over the holidays, and I make a HUGE batch of them to last us for a few weeks. We eat them straight up or sprinkle them on salads (like this Copycat Panera Strawberry Salad recipe).

Of course, I only use the best products. This is my fourth year working with Fisher Nuts, and I absolutely love the flavor and texture of their nuts. I love the resealable bags, perfect for snacking on the go. Fisher Nuts are fresh out of the shells and preservative free, as well as non-GMO certified. Our holiday’s aren’t complete without a pantry filled with blue bags of Fisher Nuts!

In the past, I’ve made Cinnamon Candied Pecans. Classic, right? I wanted to change things up this year, of course I can’t stray too far from my kid’s favorites for fear of them revolting, haha!

Maple Brown Sugar Pecans.

I added MAPLE flavoring (not syrup) to the mixture to give it a toffee, caramely flavor. I also swapped out some of the granulated sugar for brown sugar to give it more depth in flavor. This is the perfect sweet and salty snack!

    Just wondering if you have to use the maple flavoring?

  10. KatieB

    Can you use maple syrup instead of flavoring? 

  11. These would be lethal around me, one of those things that goes down by the handful. Hope you had a beautiful Christmas XO

  12. It’s too bad that the REAL MAPLE can’t be used!  All the hard work they go through just to make real Maple syrup:(

  13. Dianne

    They look wonderful! Thanks for sharing!!

  14. Lonnie

    Do you have to let them sit for about 1 week or 2 weeks in a zip lick bag or can you eat right away

  15. cynthia borst

    Where do you find maple seasoning? Is it a powder? Any particular brand? Thank you, cannot wait to try these!

  16. MJ Herron

    I’ve made these in the past and given them as gifts but I always wonder what do others do with the leftover egg yolks? Any suggestions?

  17. Kimberly Rogers

    The Pecans Sound sooo good , cant wait to try them out . Thank u facebook !!!

  18. Deb

    Could you use different kinds of nuts, such as cashews or walnuts?

  19. Marcia

    Last made these for a bake sale at church tomorrow. My husband, my official taster, have these two enthusiastic thumbs up. I don’t like nuts, but these smell divine! They are also super easy to make.

  20. Starr Tronchet

    These are fantastic!! I used pyure and coconut sugar in place of sugar and brown sugar. Turned out great. The maple extract gives it a nice rich flavor.
