Sugar and Spice Pecans

Walking through an airport, fair, or even some shopping malls, we have all seen the nut vendors.  These are so expensive to buy, but guess what, you can make these quickly and easily at home.  These nuts are simple to make, and cost so much less than what you might purchase them for.  You may even want to make a double batch.
