Slow Cooker Cinnamon Sugar Almonds
Crunchy, cinnamon-sugared almonds made right in the crock pot are a spectacular treat to bring to a party or give away as gifts to your friends and family for Christmas.
Oh do I have a treat for you today or what! These cinnamon sugar almonds were a HUGE hit at the get-together I brought them to a few weeks ago. I was surprised I even had any left to bring as I could not keep my hand out of the bowl. These taste like candy and are dangerously addictive!
I had the privilege of meeting my new friend Leigh Ann at a holiday culinary event down in Wooster, Ohio a couple of weeks ago. When she asked me to participate in a fun holiday series on her blog called “Bake, Craft, Sew” I jumped at the opportunity. It was requested that I come up with a fun food idea/recipe that is perfect for giving away to family and friends around the holidays. I knew right away that I was going to make these candied almonds. Food is the best kind of gift to receive around the holidays, and what is better than something sweet, crunchy and delicious? You can make a huge batch of these at once and divide them up to give out….OR keep them all to yourself…your choice. I decided that these are healthy since they are almonds 😉
