I have always loved glazed nuts especially cinnamon sugar glazed almonds. I hadn’t had rum glazed pecans until recently and these automatically became my favorite way to eat pecans. These pecans are very simple to make and I promise you will love them too.

You can easily make these Rum Glazed Pecans and gift them to someone this holiday. I love the smaller mason jars to put candy and nuts in for the holidays. Wrap the jars with twine and add a tag and this is a very quick DIY gift!
