Slow Cooker Cinnamon Almonds

index

1 1/2 C. Sugar

1 1/2 C. Brown Sugar

3 Tbsp. Cinnamon

1/8 tsp. Salt

1 Egg White

2 tsp. vanilla

3 Cups Almonds

1/4 C. Water

  1. Mix together in a large bowl sugars, cinnamon, and salt.
  2. In another bowl with a whisk, mix together the egg white and vanilla until it is frothy.  Add the almonds and coat thoroughly.  This will help the mixture stick to the almonds during the cooking process.
  3. Prepare your slow cooker by spraying it with cooking spray.  I used a 4 quart.  Add the cinnamon almond mixture to the almonds and turn it to low.  Stir until the cinnamon sugar mixture is coated well on the almonds Be prepared for your house to smell amazing!
  4.  You want to cook for about 3-4 hours.  Mine took about 3.  Stirring every 20 minutes.  In the very last hour, add 1/4 cup water and stir well.  This will ensure a crunchy coating and help the mixture to harden.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the almonds onto the sheet to cool.  The almonds should be pretty sticky so be sure to separate them the best that you can and let them cool!

*Update:  There is a lot of sugar left over in this.  You can reduce the sugar to probably about 1 cup of each and only putting about an 1/8 cup of water.  I am going to be testing it out this week.  Also your almonds will be very dark and clump together.  Just spread them out and try to unclump them as best as possible and let them cool.
