When the Oven is Busy, This Kitchen Appliance Works Just as Well!

These are so incredibly tasty that it makes my mouth water just looking at the recipe. I gave some of these as gifts the last time I was invited to a dinner party, and not long after I got a call asking for the recipe. The best part is you can use whatever kind of nuts you prefer, and leave out or add more spices as you please!


  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unblanched almonds
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1 cup shelled walnuts
  • 1 cup unsalted cashews
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons water


  1. Whisk egg white and vanilla until blended; stir in nuts. Mix sugars, spices and salt together in a small bowl. Add to nut mixture and toss to coat.
  2. Transfer to a greased 3-qt. slow cooker. Cook, covered, on high 1-1/2 hours, stir every 15 minutes. Gradually stir in water. Cook, covered, on low 20 minutes.
  3. Spread onto waxed paper; cool completely. Store in airtight containers, up to 1 week.



Quick Tip: Feel free to alter the type of nuts to your liking!

Thanks to Taste of Home for this sweet and nutty treat!
