Perfect Bake® recipe

Chipotle Chile Candied Pecans

These candied pecans are flat-out decadent and irresistible. Sweet, spicy, with a hint of salt, these meringue-sugar-crusted pecans are divine eaten out of hand with a tumbler of bourbon or Scotch. However, a handful of these nuts tossed into a mesclun salad along with sweetened dried cranberries and crumbled blue cheese is the perfect starter to a holiday meal. This recipe can easily be doubled; use two baking sheets with a stick of butter melted on each, and whip the double batch of meringue in a stand mixer or large mixing bowl.
