"Every once in a while a recipe comes along, like these easy Candied Pecans, that’s full of sugar and spice and everything nice and, as such, captures the hearts and fetishes of our recipe testers and readers. Salty yet sweet, crisp yet tender, and confoundingly impossible to stop at just one handful.
