Slow Cooker Thursday

Sugar Roasted Almonds

4 cups whole, unblanched almonds or mixed nuts, *toasted
1 egg white
1 tsp water
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

Place the nuts in slow cooker. In a medium mixing bowl beat the egg white and water with wire whisk or rotary beater until frothy. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour over nuts and stir gently to coat.

Cover and cook on low-heat for 4-4.5 hrs, stirring once halfway through cooking. Spread on waxed paper, separating into small clusters to cool. Store in a tightly covered container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

*Note: To toast nuts, place in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake in a 350 oven for 5-10 minutes, stirring once so nuts don't burn.

Oh, Michelle, these sound great! Now have you made them? Do they end up being crispy like if you did them in the oven? Going to have to give them a try...I'm getting almonds from my CSA this week :)

Also, I read your post about the "why's" of parenting...they do grow up so fast, and in a few years, you will look back at that post and be so thankful that Kayla wants to color in the very same spot as you, and that she wants you to color with the crayon that she selected, etc. Treasure each and every crazy, mixed up minute with your little darling!

Also, that's great that she is potty training so well at 3.....3 of my 4 weren't completely potty trained until after their 4th birthdays. I never pushed potty training....it was something that I followed their leads on.

Hugs, sweetie!

I wouldn't have to worry about these sitting in the fridge for longer than a week at my house! Sounds so delicious!

Michelle, I like the sound of these. I think I'll print this one out to try. :)

Thanks for sharing.

I never would have thought of making those in a slow cooker! What a wonderful recipe and idea!! I can see myself making those around Christmas time when my boys are home:-)

This looks like a yummy recipe! I love the picture below of the tissues all pulled out of the box. My older son did that once, but then he shredded them too. Big mess. I remember when my brother and I were little, my mom had this very 70's lamp with hundreds of little chrystals on it. My brother took every one of those chrystals off the lamp. It took my mom days to put them all back on. She just thought he was playing quietly in the next room. Never underestimate the power of kids.

I love sugar and I love almonds. I'll try this one. Wish me luck ... lots of them.


Amy said...

Those sound delicious! I have one more story for you..I was babysitting my niece who was about six at the time. She'd been coloring, cutting and pasting pictures all morning. All of the sudden she got up and tip toed down the hall with a pair of scissors! I guess she thought if she tip toed I wouldn't notice!!

Trace said...

OH YUM!!!!!! I love this kind of treat.... yum yum yum. :) I might just have to try this! hehe :)

Sandra said...

These wouldn't last long in my house at all LOL

What a great recipe Michelle, I can't wait to make them this weekend :)

Kathleen Marie said...

Wonderful and I have a whole jar of almonds in my pantry! This looks wonderful.

Thanks bunches!

Oh, have you taught her the "game" of picking up the tissue and putting them back in the box yet? ☺

Jenny said...

Sounds delish!

(But anything with more than 2 ingredients is beyond me.)

Pamela said...

Um, yummy! These sounds so good and I bet they would be delicious sprinkled in a grilled chicken salad! :)

Elizabeth said...

Hi Michelle.
Looks good. My ds had the pretty blue eyes. When he would look at me I would melt. LOL No fussing at him/ LOL

Deb said...

Ooo . . .that sounds great!

Catch said...

Umm Michelle...good one...and sounds easy too! I love almonds.

Barb said...

Never in a million years would I have thought you can do nuts in a slow cooker. I wonder if I could substitute pecans. What a clever recipe!

Tammy said...

Yummy...and I would never think to make anything like this in the slow cooker, either!
