I love fresh roasted nuts but my favorites are definitely these Slow Cooker Cinnamon Sugar Pecans.  Simple to toss the ingredients together in the slow cooker and forget about for a couple of hours then come back and find some of the best snacks ever made.  These are absolutely perfect for gift giving this holiday season or Valentine’s Day- or just because!  Grab your favorite nuts on sale and create a large batch to share with all of your friends and family.

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Sugar Pecan Ingredients

Although pecans are what we have listed here you can easily do the exact same thing with walnuts, almonds, cashews or even peanuts.  Create a blend of your favorite nuts for a special cinnamon sugar mixed nut blend.  Bag the nuts in cute cellophane bags, in small gift tins or even decorative jars and tie with a ribbon to give to your coworkers, kid’s teachers, babysitters or even just give as a gift to your neighbors.
