Add all ingredients to a large (10 - 12-inch) skillet over medium-low heat. Stir to mix all ingredients together and then stir continuously as the sugar begins to melt, making sure to coat pecan well. Cook until pecans have begun to toast lightly, about five minutes and then remove from heat. Pour onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to cool.
Allow to cool completely before serving or storing in an airtight container for gifting.
Other nuts may be substituted in place of pecans, such as almonds, walnuts, and cashews.
