Sugary cinnamon pecans made in your crock pot! These are so easy and dangerously addicting!!
4 cups Diamond of California® Pecan Halves
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 egg whites
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 tablespoons water
In a large bowl whisk together egg whites and vanilla until foamy. In another bowl combine sugars, cinnamon, and salt and stir until all ingredients are mixed well.
Add pecans to the egg mixture and toss to coat. Next, add cinnamon sugar mixture to the bowl of pecans and toss to coat. Transfer coated nuts to a greased slow cooker.
Cook nuts on low for 3 1/2 hours, stirring every 20-30 minutes. After they’re done cooking, add water and stir. Transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet and allow to cool completely (It could take up to an hour or two for all of the sugar to crystalize – don’t be afraid to sneak a few!) Store in airtight container.
