This easy stovetop recipe for candied pecans tastes delicious – especially on cold winter afternoons.


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Florida’s Natural orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 ½ cups pecan halves


  1. Melt butter in a medium skillet.
  2. Add Florida’s Natural orange juice, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt to the mixture, stirring constantly to avoid overcooking.  Bring to a simmer. 
  3. Add pecans and continue to stir over medium heat. Cook until pecans are a golden shade of brown and all orange juice liquid is adhering to the pecans, about 5-6 minutes.
  4. Transfer pecans to parchment paper and spread out to cool before eating.
