Awhile back, I was searching the archives of the internet world, looking for a new recipe for a football party when I ran across this little gem. Several adaptations and tweeks to the recipe later, we have perfection my friends! This is a go-to for tailgates and the holidays. And, the smell of the almonds roasting in your slow cooker is absolutely AMAAAZING.
Slow-Cooker Cinnamon Sugar Almonds
All you need:
1 cups granulated sugar
½ cup packed light brown sugar
1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
2 egg whites
3 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups almonds (or other nuts, as desired)
All you do:
1. Spray a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, stir together sugars and cinnamon. Set aside.
6. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over nuts, and stir until nuts are all coated well.
7. Cover; cook on low heat setting for 3 hours, stirring every 20 minutes. When cooking time is up, spread nuts on cookie sheets to cool until dry.
