Sugared Nuts


Use quick easy crock-pot recipes to learn how to make candied walnuts. This recipe for glazed Walnuts are one of the best crock-pot recipes around. Easy recipes for a slow cooker do not get more flavourful than this recipe.

Serves: 4


1 pound walnut pieces

8 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves


1. In a 3 1/2 quart slow cooker, stir the walnuts and butter until combined. Add the confectioners' sugar, stirring to coat evenly.

2. Cover and slow-cook on high for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and slow-cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the nuts are coated with a crisp glaze, about 2 hours. Transfer the nuts to a serving bowl.

3. In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon, ginger, allspice and cloves. Sift the spices over the nuts, stirring to coat evenly. Cool the nuts completely before serving.
