RECIPE: Carmelized Pecans

2 T butter

2 handfuls of pecans

1/4 C heavy cream

2-3 packets Splenda

2-3 T sugar free praline or pancake syrup

Nutmeg (optional)

Melt the butter in a pan.

Add pecans, splenda, and syrup. Let it start bubbling a bit and then add heavy cream. Make sure the flame isn’t too high or it’ll burn and curddle. Let it continue bubbling a little until it starts to thicken.

You’ll end up with a sort of creamy/carmel type of sauce over the pecans. It’s delish! If you use sweet butter (that’s what I use) then make sure you add a pinch of salt. Right before serving, sprinkle a little nutmeg over the top. Freshly grated is best but use what you have handy.

Variation: Toast a handful of shredded, unsweetened coconut in a little butter then follow the recipe above. Personally, this is my favorite. I love coconut!
