These Cinnamon & Sugar Roasted Pecans are the perfect snack, and are just like the ones you can find at Cabela’s during the holidays! You only need a few simple ingredients to make these addicting pecans, and they will make your house smell amazing, too.
Have you ever been to Cabela’s or Bass Pro Shop around the holidays? If so, you must be familiar with the absolutely divine smell of roasted pecans that seems to waft through all the aisles of fishing poles and camping gear.
It’s like heaven on earth for my husband to peruse those aisles, while it’s heaven for me to sit and nosh on a paper cone full of those delicious nuts and watch the catfish swimming in the giant fish tanks.
