One word: Gone! My husband Lee made these for the Super Bowl. "The pecans are the best thing on the table.", someone said. Bowlfuls were being taken! I'm not generally a pecan lover, but they turned my smile way up after eating just one! Two words: Awesome & Addictive!! Oh!, and Family Tested & Highly Approved!!! The secret is in Toasting the pecans first. The rest shall we say is delicious history.
