Pecan Butter Cups

Pecan Butter Cups

Homemade Chocolate Candy Is Easy

Posted on April 14, 2016

After making Homemade Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter to celebrate National Pecan Day on April 14th, I had loads left over! 2 cups worth! Sure, it’s delicious on pretty much everything, but I wanted to do something super special. My friend tried a spoonful of the fresh nut butter and said “You know what would be awesome? This… in peanut butter cups!”. He was right. I made Pecan Butter Cups the very next day. They are pure chocolate and pecan awesomeness.

With only four ingredients, this recipe is supremely simple to make. I made everything up as I went along and I wouldn’t change a thing. I will be making these again very soon. Perfect to keep on hand for a snack, or dessert. I suppose you could share them with others if you’re truly generous.

Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter

Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter

With Fire Roasted Pecans

Posted on April 07, 2016
I love pecans, so when I heard that they have their very own day - April 14th by the way; I just had to make some extra recipes to celebrate. I generally have peanut butter in the house for making Peanut Butter Banana Bread and Peanut Butter BBQ Sauce, but it got me thinking...What if you made peanut butter out of pecans instead of peanuts?? After some research, and a little innovation, I grilled up some pecans and turned them into Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter. The deep nutty tone is slightly sweet, and super perfect for just about everything you would want a nut butter for! Do you want to know the best part? It takes NO time at all to make!

Candied Pecan Banana Bread

Candied Pecan Banana Bread

A Most Versatile Quick Bread

Posted on May 27, 2015
I needed something to serve to guests on a Sunday evening, and I also needed a nutritious breakfast for the next day. So I decided to make some Candied Pecan Banana Bread. This quick bread recipe is not only moist and tasty as any banana bread should be, but it's actually full of things that are pretty good for you too. I used gluten free flour and you couldn't tell the difference, which is rare, and the candied nut topping gave you a satisfying crunch to top it all off. You'd never guess that this was made on the grill. Oh, did I mention that it's also versatile as heck too? You can throw it in a loaf pan for quick bread, muffin tins, mini loaves - which make fantastic little gifts, and even a cake pan if you wanted. You just have to remember to watch that baking time.
