Crockpot Cinnamon Roasted Almonds


Find it On Pinterest
Cook's Note: I have made these nuts several times since last year when I first saw it on Pinterest. The first time I made them.. my husband and I ate them all in about 2 days. The second time I made them - I took them to friends and had rave reviews. The third time I made them was at Thanksgiving and they certainly disappeared fast. These nuts taste like what you get at craft fairs and the smell will turn your kitchen into a wonderful dream! 
This is a great GAME DAY SNACK to keep around and munch on! 


Ingredients: 

1 1/2 cups. Sugar 
1 1/2 cups Dark Brown Sugar 
3 Tbsp. Cinnamon 
1/8 tsp. Sea Salt 
1 Egg White 
2 tsp. vanilla 
3 cups Almonds 
1/4 cup Water


Directions: 

Spray your crock pot with non-stick cooking spray (PAM) - this is important! 

In a small bowl, mix together sugar, cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl - mix together the egg white and the vanilla until frothy (using a wire whisk). Next coat the almonds with the egg/vanilla mixture then add the cinnamon/sugar mixture and coat well. Place in crock pot and cook on low for 3-4 hours, stirring well every 20-30 minutes. 
In the beginning of the last hour, add 1/4 cup of water and continue the stirring every 20 minutes. The water helps to give it the "crunchy" coating when its done. 

When done, put wax paper on your counter top and pour almond mixture onto the wax paper. Spread it out evenly with a rubber spatula and break up any pieces that are stuck together and let cool. Once cool, place in an air tight container (if you have any left! these will disappear fast!)

Would it be okay to toast the nuts first, to bring out their nuttiness and enhance the flavor?

Hi, you definitely could toast the almonds prior to putting them in the crockpot. The crockpot does give the nuts a hint of toasted flavor, but would taste great if you also toasted first. Thanks for stopping by!

We will be happy to look into adding a print button, we definitely don't want anyone to consider us "worthless". Thanks!
