Ever since I can remember, my mom has made these spiced pecans for the holiday season. They never lasted long and went like candy. Afterwards, we would all go deer hunting for the rest of the night. By the time all of the hunters were back, the pecans would be gone! They never lasted more than 48 hours. –Kalyn Cronk
