Slow Cooker Candy Nuts

Have you ever walked down a city street and you pass a hot nut vendor? The smell fills the air with nutty sweet goodness and you crave a bag. Now imagine making it at home. I made the mistake of doing it at night in the slow cooker and kept getting out of bed to have a few more, the whole house smell amazing.


1 Lb Pecans
1/2 Lb Walnuts
1 Stick Butter
1/4 Cup White Sugar
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp Pumpkin Spice
1/2 Grated Whole Nutmeg
1/2 Tbs Cinnamon

Star by heating butter and white sugar in a pot until melted. While butter is melting pre-heat slow cooker. Next, place nuts in slow cooker and pour butter mix on top. Stir together well then sprinkle in brown sugar,pumpkin spice and nutmeg. Stir well and cook on high for an hour leaving the lid partly open. Then add vanilla and cinnamon and stir again and continue to cook with no cover for about another 40 minutes. Remove mixture and pour onto large cookie sheet to cool over night. Store in air tight container.
