Crock Pot Sweet and Spicy Nuts
Ingredients for Sweet and Spicy Nuts
- Pecan halves
- Pure maple syrup
- Kosher salt
- Cayenne pepper
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; you will remove the will slide right off while they cool down.

How long will these keep in an air tight jar?
Tammilee, I bet it was frustrating for you that this recipe wasn't coming up (beautiful pictures, though). I kept clicking everything in the 'Filed Under:" reference and when I clicked on Gifts in a Jar, I was able to locate the recipe. Yeahhh! I'm making these as little gifts in decorated bags for our Women's Ministry lunch. Wish you could see how pretty they are. Thanks for sharing this easy, yummy recipe.
OMG, making these in my Instant Pot!!!
I have repeatedly gone to your website to print out the recipe of the candied walnuts and the recipe itself is not there. It only shows the photo but no recipe.
Hi, I am not sure why this is happening. I am going to work on the post today and see if I can fix it.
