Sherry’s Pecan Candy

A recipe from my sweet friend Sherry.  And Mmmm, these are yummy!  And healthy!  A nice snacky dessert treat!

My tip:  Don’t overbake the pecans at all, no more than 10 minutes!

2 cups pecans
1/4 cup palm sugar
1/3 cup coconut milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 salt
1 Tbsp agave nectar
1 tsp vanilla

-Roast the pecans 300 degree fan oven for 10 minutes, stirring them once during baking. (If no fan, watch closely and flip as needed)
-Mix in a small pan the Palm sugar, coconut milk, cinnamon, salt, and agave nectar.
-Cook to soft ball stage (to test, drop a few drops in a cup of cool water until it forms a soft ball that can be picked up.)
-After reaching soft ball stage, remove from heat add the vanilla and stir briefly.
-Add the roasted pecans, mix well until they are all coated.
-Spread on wax paper. When cool break apart.

These can be kind of individually wrapped for “candy” treats.
