3. Place pecans into a slow cooker prepared with cooking spray. ( I used a 4.5 qt crockpot for this single batch). Pour egg white mixture over pecans and stir until nuts are evenly coated.

4. Next sprinkle cinnamon sugar over pecans, and stir until nuts are all coated well with sugar.  Cook covered on LOW for 3 hours, stirring every 2o minutes. When 20 minutes are left, pour 1/4 cup of water into the crockpot and stir.  This will make a the outer shell nice and crunchy.

5. When cooking time is up, spread nuts out on a cookie sheet to cool for 15/20 minutes.

  1. Oh my goodness — one of my favorite foods (snack, salad topper, trail mix ingredient…), and SO EASY.
    What a great Christmas present for your followers!

  2. So easy…so good!! My house smells wonderful…cinnamon..and it’s not Christmas. Plan to use
    on salads…spice it up a little. Can’t get the rating to work…so just know this it’s a 5!!!!

  3. So easy to make and no clean up to speak of except for the crock pot. I’m a novice but surprised the wife after being gone shopping for the day. She was impressed.

  4. I made these and half of them came out burnt. I followed the recipe and even had to cook them about 30 min short of the 3 hours called for. It was a hassle to stir every 20 minutes. The ones that were not burnt were good, but wasted half of them. Will not try this recipe again.

    • Sorry some of yours burnt Janis. It really in important to keep up with the stirring so burning doesn’t occur. I usually make these while I am already in the kitchen cooking other things, so the 20 min intervals don’t become a hassle. If you do decide to try them out again, maybe try a medium setting on your crockpot, as it sounds like yours might run on the hotter side. I hope that helps :)

  5. I just finished making some and it came out delicious. The recipe was easy to follow and directions were clear, I had no issues!
