Guinness Glazed Pecans

These pecans are delicious and pretty easy to make.

You do want to have a candy thermometer to help with monitoring the sugar when it comes to a hard boil. That is probably the hardest part of this entire recipe.


  • 4 cups pecans
  • ½ cup Guinness Draught Stout Beer
  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter


  1. Melt sugar and butter in a small saucepan over low to medium heat. Add in Guinness
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil to hard crack stage or 300 on a candy thermometer.
  3. Remove from heat and pour in pecans.
  4. Toss nuts to glaze, coat evenly.
  5. Spread on wax paper to cool.
  6. Separate when cool and enjoy.

Don't feel like baking? Our praline pecans make a great substitute.
