Food & Wine Holiday Snacks
By Tina Ujlaki Posted November 26, 2014

Addictive spiced candied pecans are great on their own, but F&W executive food editor Tina Ujlaki also likes to use them to upgrade other dishes.

One of the star snacks in F&W's collection for Mouth.com, Treat Bake Shop's Spiced Candied Pecans from Wisconsin live up to their name in all three ways—they're perfectly spiced and artfully candied with a super fresh, deep pecan flavor. The addictive nuts are great on their own, but F&W executive food editor Tina Ujlaki also likes to use them to upgrade other dishes. Here, three of her favorite tricks.

1. Chop fairly fine and use to coat goat or cheddar cheese balls.

2. Chop and use as a soup garnish.
