  • 1 1/2 cups raw pecan halves
  • 2 tbsps The Australian Carob Co. Carob Syrup
  • 2 tbsps butter
  • 2 tbsps light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsps organic pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp organic pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  • Put all the ingredients into a heavy bottom non-stick sauce pan and set the heat on medium.
  • Stir constantly with a heatproof rubber or silicon spatula.
  • While stirring, let it heat up and come to a boil, and boil for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Turn the heat down and let it simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes or until it is caramelizing.
  • When the mixture is coated and caramelized, pour it onto a sheet of parchment paper to cool.
  • When it is cool enough to touch, separate the pieces from each other and let them cool completely.
  • Depending on your stove and heat settings, times can be different.
  • If the mix is too sticky after cooling completely, it can be baked at 375F to continue the caramelizing.
  • Or, even if sticky, the pecans make a great topping for yogurt, ice cream or mixed into popcorn.
  • You can adjust the time for obtaining the hardened glaze that you like with the next batch, because, being so tasty, this batch will likely be promptly enjoyed.
