Slow Cooker Spiced Nuts

Let’s start with the Slow Cooker Spiced Nuts because they not only make a great snack to have around the house during the holidays, they also make a really thoughtful gift. Making them in a slow cooker means you can cook up a big batch for friends and family and all you have to do is put all of the ingredients in the slow cooker, turn it on, and stir every now and then.

Slow cookers make holiday cooking so easy, and I’ve been loving my De’Longhi Livenza Slow Cooker. It’s a step up from the classic slow cooker because the 6 quart cooking pot is stovetop-safe. That means no more dirtying another pan to brown your meat before placing it in the slow cooker. You can roast or sauté the ingredients right in the cooking pot and then place it in the slow cooker, set to low, medium, or high, and let it finish cooking. It even has a programmable timer so you can truly set it and forget it! It will auto keep warm for up to 12 hours, and when the meal is over you can put both the pot and the lid in the dishwasher for easy clean-up. It has inspired me to do a lot more slow-cooking this winter!

How to Make Slow Cooker Spiced Nuts:

  1. Spray the cooking pan of your slow cooker with non-stick spray.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, an chili powder.
  3. Add nuts to the slow cooker and sprinkle the sugar and spices over them.
  4. Add water and stir until fully combined.
  5. Place a paper towel over the top of the slow cooker pot and then place the lid on it. This keeps the condensation that gathers on the glass lid from falling back into the pot and making the nuts soggy.
  6. Turn the knob on the De’Longhi Livenza Slow Cooker to LOW, set the cook time to 3 hours, and press START. Stir the nuts every 30 minutes.
  7. When the cook time is up remove the nuts from the slow cooker and spread them out in a single layer on a lined baking sheet. Let the nuts cool completely.
  8. Store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

Slow Cooker Spiced Nuts are so easy to make and they are totally delicious. The sweet cinnamon and sugar coats each one and that little dash of chili powder offsets the sweetness with the tiniest bit of spice. It’s the perfect combination. It also makes a great gift. Package the spiced nuts in mason jars, tie a holiday ribbon around it, and hand them out as a gift to friends and family!
