Nuts for Nuts!

I recently saw a photo of some homemade glazed nuts on Pinterest, my new favorite website, have I mentioned that already?  These aren't just any nuts but crockpot nuts, another favorite of mine, the crockpot.  Are we seeing a pattern here?

With all the ingredients on hand, a rainy night and the feel for some cozy goodness told me this was the night to make these.


16 ounces pecans or walnuts
1/2 cup melted butter
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Put crockpot on high and heat for atleast 15 minutes.  After the 15 minutes add the melted butter, spices and nuts.  Stir well.  Cover and heat for 10 minutes.  Add powdered sugar and stir well.  Cover and cook another 10 minutes.  Then remove the lid and turn crockpot to low.  Cook for the next 2 to 3 hours stirring often with the lid OFF.  Spoon nuts out onto a sheet of parchment to cool.
