Alisha Nuttall is the owner of Cravings Alisha’s Cupcakes and a sweets mastermind. She won Cupcake Wars around 10 years ago and her shop in Pleasant Grove features her cutest cupcake creations, like Princess Vanilla, Chocolate Tuxedo Cheesecake and Better Than What! But her chosen holiday recipe is for these candied nuts, a recipe Alisha shared for any family looking for a way to wow the cousins at the next family Christmas party. There’s no sugar coating it — these candied pecans are a holiday win.
