Made in your slow cooker, candied mixed nuts are a simple and sweet homemade gift to give this holiday season!


  • 4 cups pecans
  • 4 cups almonds
  • 4 cups walnuts
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons cinnamon
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Liberally spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk egg whites and vanilla together until it becomes a little frothy. Add all of the nuts and stir until the nuts are coated with egg white mixture.
  4. Place nuts to slow cooker and add sugar mixture, stirring to combine.
  5. Cook on low for 3 hours, stirring every 20 minutes.
  6. When there is 20 minutes left, add water – this will help give the candied nuts a glossy finish.
