Crockpot Candied Pecans
You all know I love my Crock Pot! I love how quick, easy and tasty dishes are with the Crock Pot. Today I am in LOVE with this Crock Pot Cinnamon Pecan recipe. Oh my goodness these are amazing.
I made these as DIY Christmas gifts for John's Mom and Grandmother. After making them I wasn't sure I was going to have enough to get in their packages. John absolutely loved these cinnamon sugar pecans and every time I turned around he was walking by "taste testing" another handful to make sure they were all good. I was able to package some up for John's Mom and she told me they were amazing and asked when was the next batch is being made.

Ingredients needed to make Cinnamon Candied Pecans
- Brown sugar
Crockpot - We suggest using a crockpot that has a digital timer that automatically switches the slow cooker to warm after a set amount of time. This helps make sure your dinner cooks perfectly and you don't have to stress about what time it is going to be done.
Baking Sheets - We are huge fans of these baking sheets with sides. You don't have to worry the candied pecans are going to slide right off.
Large Mixing Bowl - We are big fans of this glass batter bowl that has a handle. It makes it easy to mix ingredients and keeps the mixing bowl steady on the counter.
Make sure to spray the crockpot with non-stick cooking spray before adding in the pecans.
The water that gets added at the last 30 minutes makes the candied sugar and cinnamon crisp up and makes it crunchy. If you want to see the sugar and cinnamon parts like the photo you can skip this step.
You will want to set reminders to stir every 20 minutes to make sure the nuts do not stick together. I used a wooden spoon or spatula to easily move them around in the crockpot.
Spreading the pecans out over parchment paper is a great way to let them cool off and completely dry so they don't clump together when you package them.
These cinnamon candied pecans package up so cute in a mason jar with a ribbon and cute labels.
This recipe can be doubled but you will want to make sure that you have space to easily stir the pecans so they don't clump. It may be easier to do multiple batches.
