Wonderful! My family could not stop eating them. I roasted the pecans in the over...very quick and easy.

Being a teacher, I'm giving these an A+! What an easy and fast recipe to make. The end results are incredibly delicious-- to the point where my fellow teachers and I called them "down-right addictive". Already planning on making some more to share with family and friends for the holiday.

I would recommend roasting the pecans in the oven. The flavor was awesome, but the pecans were not roasted enough. I did use raw pecans and this did not say anything about raw or not. I had some five-spice and love it!! Great flavor!!
