Naughty + Nice Pecans
Unexpected company popping in? I think we’ve all been there. You scramble to find the cheese ball and crackers or oven baked dip. Both great options but what if you mixed things up and went “old school”. Think Mad Men era? Pour some drinks and serve these spicy + sweet pecans! We warn you, they’re addictive so definitely make LOTS! The secret to the crunch? Egg whites! Wrap them up as a “take with” gift when the night is over!
Naughty + Nice Pecans
These sweet and slightly spicy delights will be your NIBBLES go-to from now on! Easy to make, with egg whites being the secret ingredient that gives these pecans the extra crunch!
