The first time I ate pecan diamonds I fell head over heel. I LOVE honey ,I LOVE brown sugar, I LOVE pecans. Those ingredients once mixed together are just ULTRA ESQUISITE, ULTRA TASTEFULL AND ULTRA SCRUMPTIOUS . Every time I eat them it is purely ethereal. "The human race is divided into two classes-those who go ahead and do something, and those who sit and inquire why wasn't it done the other way?"

    If you love honey like I love it here is what I do. I melt about 1/2 cup of honey with 2 Tbsp of melted butter and mix it well. I brush the pecans to glaze them. Cut in diamonds shape and voila! I never can have enough pecan diamonds...I especially love it in the DIAMOND SHAPE. Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend!
