White Chocolate Spiced Pecans

So there’s a little thing called “spiced pecans,” that my momma makes every year. It’s pretty much the only time I’ll eat nuts for a snack. Well, until now.

The spiced pecans, covered in sugar and sweet spices… make my eyeballs roll back in my head. So this year, when I was thinking about all of the crazy delish holiday recipes that were about to take place, I remembered these little gems. As I was thinking about them, I looked to the side, and saw a bark of Ghirardelli white chocolate sitting there staring at me. That’s when White Chocolate + Spiced Pecans formed a beautiful relationship in my kitchen.

I will warn you… deez nuts (sorry I had to) are extremely addicting. I had some friends over the day after we made these for the blog photo shoot, and they disappeared rather quickly. I’d say that they were approved.

Gift Idea

If we would have kept our mitts out of them, I wanted to turn these in to a gift for someone by putting them in a cute little window bag, or container. So next time, I shall double the recipe to have some for ourselves, and extras to give out! Shop my FAVORITE food and gift containers here: Food & Gift Containers.

    Hi Jessica, Just checking that the White Chocolate Spiced Pecans need to be baked for 40 to 60 minutes, and stirred every ONE MINUTE? Was that a typo?
    Sounds very yummy but don’t want to open the oven 40 to 60 times. Thanks

    1. Jessica says:

      Oh my goodness Linda, YES! It was a typo! I’m so sorry about that. It’s stirring every 10 minutes! Eeek, so glad you caught that and said something. I just switched had an update here on the recipe portion of my site, and it didn’t carry that over correctly. Thank you again for letting me know! I hope you enjoy them! XO

    Hi Jessica. Can other nuts be used? I’ve been looking a white chocolate covered walnut recipe that is sooooo good? Can’t find that recipe , but your recipe sounds similar. Thanks

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Judy! I’ve never tried another type of nut, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work! The cook time may differ, depending on the nut, but other than that, I can’t think of a reason why it wouldn’t be just as delish!! 🙂

    Jessica, I Love your recipe and thank you for your hard work in sharing. I modified it slightly, used two egg whites, instead of one, and whipped them with the vanilla per the recipe, but till almost soft peaks. Used about a 50/50 mix of pecans and walnuts. I found for me that right about 50 minutes baking was optimal. Also, used 6oz of Ghirardelli, loved the extra white chocolate. And one final comment, after one bite, I was addicted, had to quickly put out of site…… 😃

      Hi Dave! All of that sounds wonderful, thank you for sharing. I’m so glad that you liked them and thank you for coming back to let us know!
