Yummy nutty candy mix

Not sure what to call this. Any ideas?

1 pkg pecan halves, 2 tbl butter, 2 tbl brown sugar diabetisweet, 4 drops liquid splenda. Melt butter, sweeteners in sauce pan add pecans stir till well coated. Keep stirring don't leave the pan. When sweeteners begin to candy on your spoon spread out on plate let cool completely, break apart pecans that may be stuck together. Add mixed salted nuts and sugar free chocolate chips, and candied pecans. Toss to mix.....

Fantastic but definitely something one may struggle with portion control. Would be great to take to a party.

I used a 6 oz bag of pecans halves, 1/2 a 12 oz can of mixed nuts, and 1/2 bag of Hershey s/f chocolate chips.


Also recently found diabetisweet at Meijers.

into little snackie bags..???
