A perfect holiday snack. Also wraps up nicely for a delightful homemade gift. Using walnuts in place of the pecans or mixing half and half is very yummy as well.

    Love doing a raw version of this with soaked pecans, and using a dehydrator instead of an oven! = )

    seems there is an error in this recipe. Instructions call for molassses… ingredients does not include molasses..
    i wanted to make this … a correction would be appreciated

  • Aria

    Thank u so much for pointing this out! Much appreciated… ;)

    You can either do this recipe with or without molasses so if u want to use it add 2TB. The nuts will have a different taste so try both ways and see what u like better!
