My nephew Dan taught me this recipe, simple and so very tasty! He is a missionary serving in Taiwan and I am very proud of him and his wife and kids. They are also helping with the efforts in restoring the Philippians'. I am very proud of them.

    add the pecan and coat, immediately remove from heat, you must work very quickly!

    Repeat the procedure for another pan with the remaining 1/2 package orange jello and water. Clean pan immediately after use as it could harden and do damage to your pan.

    Dan said that you can use different flavors of jello for this candy nut treat. My favorite is the orange, once you try it. You be the judge. Store remainder in airtight containers, if they last this long! Enjoy!
