What is super easy to make, smells like Christmas and can top just about any meal you eat? These Crockpot Candied Pecans!
I LOVE making these Crockpot Candied Pecans for so many reasons. The are so easy to toss into the Crockpot with minimal ingredients, they call for cinnamon (my favorite flavor), you can add them to dips, salads, other desserts and more + they make a great DIY gift for the foodies in your life!
I will warn you though, these are highly addicting and you will want to make batch after batch! But hey, it’s not Christmastime without candied nuts, right?
