Happy Labor Day

I'm back....been traveling so much with work and never having anytime anymore. I changed jobs and went to work for the state as a Foster Care Placement Manager. I am loving my new job. 
Grabbed it off of Pinterst and thought I would share.

Will's Crockpot Sugared Pecans or Walnuts

An easy Fall recipe for snack or to take to a party....
Spiced pecans or walnuts, from the slow cooker. Sugared pecan recipe with cinnamon and spices, or use walnuts.


  • 16 ounces pecans or walnut halves
  • 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger


Turn slow cooker to HIGH about 15 minutes in advance. In hot slow cooker, stir together the nuts and butter. Add the powdered sugar, stirring to blend and coat evenly. Cover and cook on HIGH for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to LOW and remove lid; cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 2 to 3 hours, or until the nuts are coated with a crisp glaze.
Transfer the nuts to a bowl.
In another small bowl, combine the spices; sift over the nuts, stirring to coat evenly.
Let cool before serving.
I have a bunch in my freezer so this is what I am going to do tomorrow since it will be a raining holiday in the south. Enjoy!

Welcome back and congratulations on your new job.

These pecans look so good. I know that I could make a huge pig out of myself if I had them to enjoy.
