Easy way to make a delicious treat! Use your favorite nuts: pecans, walnuts, cashews--whatever!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat crock pot on high for 15 minutes.
  2. In preheated crock pot stir the nuts and butter until mixed well.
  3. Add the powdered sugar, stirring to coat evenly. Cover and slow-cook on HIGH for 15 minutes.
  4. Reduce the heat to LOW and slow cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the nuts are coated with a crisp glaze (should be about 2 hours).
  5. Transfer the nuts to a bowl.
  6. In another small bowl, combine the spices and sift them over the nuts, stirring to coat evenly. Let cool before serving.

Very delicious and easy party food. I used pecans and doubled the recipe and if I did it again, I wouldn't double the amount of butter because I had a little too much butter in the bottom of the crockpot. However, I tipped them out on to some parchment paper and they turned out fine. I added some cayenne pepper to the spices which gave it a nice "bite" with the sweetness. So more-ish! Will definitely do again soon.

This is the perfect 3 pm work snack. One little handful of these stave off my appetite until dinner. I added a little salt to mine, because I like things sweet AND salty. Thanks for the recipe!

We made these this weekend. Oh my, are they ever good. We made a double batch, half walnuts, half pecans. Will definitely make these again!
