Chai Spice Pecans

These crunchy chai spice pecans are really simple to make and taste out of this world delicious. Great to serve for any gathering or when you want a treat to munch on at home. Enjoy!

 

These chai spice nuts have become a family favorite.

I originally made them last year for the super bowl.

We had some friends over and I put these out along with a few more munchies like chips and pretzels.

These were gone within five minutes!

Everyone loved them including the kids. Now, I make these on a regular basis since we enjoy them as a snack and even tossed over salads.

My son takes a bagful to school and enjoys them with lunch. My husband brings them to work when craving something salty and sweet. I love them at night when relaxing with my two dogs, a cup of coffee and watching TV.

Anytime is great for these gems.

Try putting them over oatmeal or yogurt.

Of course they are just perfect over vanilla ice cream. Make some soon and crunch away!

How to make chai spice pecans…

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 340 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Add brown sugar, salt, spices and zest if using. Take off the heat and add vanilla. Mix well. 
  3. Toss in the pecans and with a rubber spatula try to coat all the pecans. 
  4. Spread the pecans onto the baking sheet. Try to keep a single layer. Bake for about 10 minutes or until they start to brown, then watch for how dark you want them. Just try not to completely burn them. Halfway through baking, toss the pecans or shake the pan gently. Move the baking sheet to another rack in the oven. 
  5. Take out when finished and let cool in pan resting on a wire cooling rack. When cooled, break up and can be stored in a glass container up to 4 days.
