Preheat your oven to 400. Lay the pecans on a baking sheet with parchment and toast in the oven for roughly 3-5 minutes. Take the pecans out of the oven and set aside. In a large sauce pan, melt the butter, sugar, and salt on medium. Stir in toasted pecans to the butter and Mint Julep Sugar mixture (reserve the parchment-lined baking sheet). Stir and allow the sugar to dissolve and bubble slightly. Add the bourbon and continue to stir for 3-5 more minutes on medium. Pour this mixture onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and allow to cool for about an hour.
