I've bought pecans glazed in various flavors in the past. Now I know how to make them. I like having glazed nuts on hand for the holidays. I think the cocoa and chili powder combo will really rock.

How to Make Spicy Cocoa-Glazed Pecans

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a shallow baking pan with cooking spray.
