Candied Pecan Bites

Who needs the calories of pecan pie when you can have these nutritious, candied pecan bites instead? The organic molasses adds a lovely gooeyness to the crunchiness of the nuts, making it perfect for a light snack or dessert. I love making these and packaging them up nicely to bring as a holiday or host gift when I'm going to a party!
