The perfect Christmas gift for you or a loved one
Place 2 tbsp caster sugar in a small pan with 1 tbsp water. Heat for 2 mins, without stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Tip in 85g pecans and cook until the sugar turns golden brown and coats the nuts. Sprinkle over a pinch cayenne pepper, season with a little salt, then turn out onto baking paper, separating out nuts as much as you can. Leave to cool. Will keep in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
