{A Load of Crock: candies spiced nuts}

 {I tried something a little unconventional in the pot! Candied nuts! It kinda worked..I'll be honest. I may have forgotten about them and they got a little burned. You definitely need to keep the cooker on low for this one! I need to play around with this one a little more to get it right, but it showed promise!}

 2 cups nuts {I used a mixture of pecans and almonds}
a couple tbsp butter..maybe 2-3
1/4 vanilla sugar
1/4 powdered sugar

Toss in your crock pot on high for as long as it takes to melt the butter and sugar. Stir occasionally. Give it a minute to warm up.  It kinda took awhile. I used what i had on hand, so I wouldn't have to spend a lot. You can kinda make this up as you go. Once melted cook on high for 10 min then low for 2 hrs. Keep a close eye on it, because it may not take this long. It depends on your pot. Add your spices of choice. I used a touch of salt and heap of cinnamon. They taste great served warm.

{Test it out! See what you think!}
