*To candy the pecans, put about 3/4 cup pecans in a small saute pan, add 2 tablespoons of sugar and move the pan constantly over a medium low heat until the sugar starts to turn golden. Stir so that they are evenly coated with the sugar. Dump the nuts on a cookie sheet to cool. Chop or break them up when they are cool. CAUTION NOTE: hot sugar and hot nuts are, well, hot! Don't leave them for a moment, because they can go from golden to burnt in just a few seconds!
