These candied nuts are really simple to make. The slow cooker does all the work for you. You do need to make them the day before you need them, to let them dry overnight. One morning, after a day of making up a batch of these candied nuts and leaving them on the counter overnight to dry, we came downstairs to nuts and shredded wax paper all over the floor. Apparently, our dogs were fans of these candied nuts too. Our dogs were fine, but now we leave ours on baking sheets to dry, safely in the oven overnight.
I like to use a mix of nuts for the variety, but you can use whatever nuts you prefer. Almonds are really delicious, all by themselves.
Super Bowl Sunday is just a few weeks away and we are already planning what will be on the menu. Salty and sweet with just a little bit of spice, these candied nuts are the perfect snack. They are great to tide you over before a meal or as a treat, late in the day.
Store these candied nuts in an airtight container, in a cool, dark place and they will last up to one month or up to six months in the freezer. Make sure that they are completely dry before packing up for storage.
