I absolutely love giving homemade gifts at Christmas. It is a tradition in my house. It is like giving a part of yourself and I can not think of a better way to celebrate the season.

A few year back it seemed like most of the people on our Christmas list were dealing with some type of food issue. So, I diversified from my standard treats of pecan bars, brownies, cookies and such. That is the year I started making different varieties of candied nuts to give.

In addition to the favorites. I started with honey ginger almonds (which are spectacular) and eventually worked my way to these Crockpot Cinnamon Roasted Almonds. They were a huge hit and I had a lot of requests for the recipe too! This recipe is about as easy as can be.

You whisk together the egg whites and vanilla. Toss in the almonds. Pour into the slow cooker and stir in the remaining ingredients (reserve the water for later) and cook. All that is left to do is enjoy them and bag them up into a cello bag with a beautiful ribbon for a gorgeous presentation.

You are going to love these!

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Crockpot Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

Crockpot Cinnamon Roasted Almonds are crunchy cinnamon glazed almonds that are perfectly roasted right in your slow cooker. This simple recipe is so easy, they just about cook themselves. Candied nuts make for the perfect homemade holiday gift.

Ingredients

  • 2 egg whites 
  • 2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract 
  • 3 pounds (10 cups) whole raw almonds
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar 
  • 1/4 cup ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 1/4 cup water (does not go in until the last hour) 

Instructions

  1. Spray a 6-quart slow cooker bowl with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Add egg whites and vanilla to a large bowl. Whisk until frothy but not stiff. Add almonds and toss until they are all completely coated. Pour almonds into slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients (except the water) to slow cooker and stir with almonds until they are well coated.
  3. Set slow cooker to low temperature. Cover. Cook 4-5 hours, stirring occasionally (at least once an hour). After 3 hours add 1/4 cup water to slow cooker and stir well. Cover and cook for the last hour (or two), stirring occasionally. Almonds are done when the coating begins to harden. 
  4. Spoon almonds onto parchment paper or silpat mats. Allow to dry. 
  5. Serve and enjoy! 

DONNA'S NOTES

  1. Recipe can be halved. If you prefer you can divide these onto 2 cookies sheets and can toss these in the oven at 250°F for 45-55 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  2. Those look amazing! I think I'll make up a batch for the holidays - because you know calories don't count the month of December :D

  3. Would like to make with pecans. What adjustments would you make? They have more oil and are not as dense as almonds.

  4. These are wonderful and extremely easy to make! After my second "inhaled" batch my husband asked if I could make these without cinnamon. Any thoughts or suggestions for an alternative spice or method.
