Growing up, and currently living in the American south, pecans have been a pretty large part of my diet for a very long time. Pecan-centric desserts tend to be sweet, sticky, and completely decadent. Aside from the fact that they contain natural nuts, there is absolutely nothing healthy about the desserts on this list. That’s totally okay, though! From deliciously smooth ice cream to good old fashioned pound cake, this list has enough amazing pecan desserts to keep you satisfied for a long time.
1. Salted Caramel Pecan Ice Cream
A decadently sweet homemade pecan ice cream is beautifully swirled with a world-class salted caramel sauce. This ice cream recipe takes a bit of work, sure, but one bite (or lick!) and you’ll completely fall in love.
