Cooking Time:4 hours on LOW
Ingredients1 1/2 c. Sugar
1 1/2 c. Brown Sugar (packed)
3 T. Cinnamon
1/8 tsp. Salt
1 Egg White
2 tsp. vanilla
3 c. Almonds (whole) or Nuts of your choice
1/4 c. Water
Slow Cooker Candied Almonds are to die for! I have always loved almonds made this way and was thrilled to find I can make them in the Slow Cooker! They make a nice (and low-cost) gift around the holidays as well.
- Combine brown & white sugars, cinnamon and salt in a medium sized bowl and set aside.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites and vanilla until frothy.
- Toss the almonds in the egg white mixture and stir to coat well.
- Add the cinnamon-sugar mixture to the almonds and mix until almonds are coated.
- Use a slow cooker liner or use non-stick spray to coat the crock well.
- Place coated almonds in the slow cooker and crock on LOW for 3 hours. Stir every 20 minutes (this is important!)
- When 3 hours crocking time is done add 1/4 c. of water and stir well.
- Cover. Crock on Low 1 more hour (continuing to stir every 20 minutes)
When finished crocking, place individual almonds on a sheet of parchment paper to cool. Enjoy when cooled!
