A traditional recipe for honey-roasted pecans calls for 2 cups of shelled pecan halves and 1/4 cup of honey. In order to prepare, begin by heating an oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Arrange the pecans evenly across a baking sheet, and roast the pecans for around 12 minutes or until they turn brown. Transfer the pecans into a saucepan on medium-high heat along with the honey. Simmer the mixture for four minutes or until the mixture begins to bubble.

Line a baking sheet with wax or parchment paper, and drizzle the honey-pecan mixture in an even layer across the pan. Separate any connected pecans from each other with a fork. Allow the honey-roasted pecans to cool completely prior to attempting to remove them from the pan. Store the pecans in an airtight container to eat as a snack. Some recipes call for dusting a mixture of salt, cinnamon and sugar over the pecans prior to cooking to add extra flavor.
