It's not quick but not much work.
CANDIED PECANS (about 2 1/2 cups)
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsulphured dark molasses
2 tsp ground dried red chile
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups pecan halves

Preheat oven to 250. Grease a 9x12" baking dish.
In a heavy saucepan, bring all ingredients except pecans to a boil over high heat. Add the pecans, stir well & reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook teh pecans 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally until the syrup has been well reduced.
With a slotted spoon, transfer the pecans to the baking dish. Bake the nuts about 1 1/4 hours, stirring trem about halfway through the cooking time. When ready, teh pecans will be dark brown & crunchy. Stir them a few more times & transfer to waxed paper to cool. Tightly covered, teh pecans will keep at least a week.~~TX Home Cooking
(Make sure your oven temperature is correct.)

I've used this one with pecans even though it calls for mixed nuts:
2 cups mixed salted nuts
1 egg white
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Slightly beat egg white with a fork until frothy, then add sugar & beat. Add cinnamon. Pour this over nuts & mix until nuts are compeltely coated w/the sugar mixture. Spread out on a brown paper covered cookie sheet (or use parchment paper). Bake in a preheated 325 oven for 25-30 minutes. Watch closely as they burn easily. Break apart.

Ginger, is the spiced nuts a good one for salads? We have 68# of pecans coming next month from the sheller.

Here's a good one. Just made it last week.

Holiday Candied Nuts

4 cups nuts (I used pecans)
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup water

Mix and low boil over medium heat until the water is gone. Stir often to keep nuts separated and from sticking to pot. spread coated nuts on a cookie sheet and bake 1 hour at 225 degrees. Stir nuts or shake cookie sheet a few times to separate the nuts. Cool and store.

Enjoy! Actually, I don't mind if the nuts are in big clumps. Don't have to reach as often.

Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee
Candied Walnuts
Nonstick vegetable spray
6 tablespoons plus 3 more tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons orange-tangerine juice
2 cups walnut halves
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Line a large cookie sheet with foil and spray with nonstick spray. In a 10-inch skillet over medium heat, add 6 tablespoons sugar and orange-tangerine juice. Bring to a simmer, and then add walnuts. Cook until sugar is absorbed and mixture starts to caramelize around walnuts, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes.
In a small bowl, mix cinnamon and remaining 3 tablespoons sugar. Toss walnuts in cinnamon-sugar. Place walnuts in single layer on prepared cookie sheet. Bake until walnuts appear crystallized and toasted, about 8 minutes.
