Looking for another item to add to your Thanksgiving dessert buffet? Wow your guests with Honey Bars! This southern delicacy is a delectable combination of sugar, honey, cinnamon, and pecans, topped with sweet vanilla icing. Aside from the mouthwatering concoction of ingredients, this baked good is rather simple to make.


Here’s what you’ll need to churn out this dessert dish:


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup oil (preferably corn oil)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 scant teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla



Mix sugar, oil, honey, vanilla, and egg in a bowl until smooth. Next, dump in the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and chopped pecans and stir again.
