How to Make Crockpot Candied Almonds – a slow cooker recipe to help you make holiday hostess gifts!
Did you know you can make Crockpot Candied Nuts? I love you, Pinterest.
All you do is dump a 1 lb. bag of raw nuts into a crockpot – no need to spray it or anything…
…then top with 1/3 cup brown sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, some nutmeg, and 2 Tablespoons of Honey, Maple Syrup, and Butter.
Crank that slow cooker up to high, and stir every 20 minutes for about 2 hours. I wound up leaving the cover off for the last 30 because it was still pretty syrupy, and added a sprinkle of Maldon Sea Salt Flakes to balance out the flavors.
Finally, dump everything onto a sheet tray to cool…
…lined with foil/spray for easier clean up.
After another 30 minutes, they literally stand on their own.
Abe taste tested them and helped me break them into individual pieces. He couldn’t stop eating them, so I knew they were good. (I had some at a party I bring them to, and they are, indeed, addictive.)
…three last-minute homemade gifts – no sweat.
P.S. They do wind up sticking right back together – so I’d recommend keeping them in a wide container instead…a tin for peanut brittle/chocolate bark would be good.
