Crock Pot Glazed Pecans

Who doesn’t love glazed nuts? I’m not sure what we love more, the cinnamon flavor or the delicious aroma that fills the kitchen.  The cinnamon goodness of these slow cooker candied cinnamon pecans tastes great any time of the year, and they make the best gifts around the holidays.

This slow cooker recipe is a great way to free up that precious oven space when you are knee-deep in a holiday bake-a-thon! Barbara couldn’t keep the little fingers of her kids out of these. What a great way to introduce them to pecans.

Where’s the best place to buy nuts?

Pecans were the nut of choice in our house growing up. Our mom used to order them from someplace around the holidays, and a big box full of pecan halves would arrive just in time for holiday baking!  If that’s right up your alley, try order pecans here (we are not affiliated with Nuts.com).

Today, I keep my eyes open for deals on pecans around the holiday, but if there aren’t any sales, you can always find them at Aldi for a decent price!

How to properly store pecans after opening?

Place the pecans in an airtight container or zip-lock bag, and store in the freezer until ready to use.  This prevents the natural oils in the pecans from going rancid and causing an off-flavor.

Can I freeze Candied Pecans?

Yes, place these in an airtight bag or container for up to 2 months in the deep freeze.

Notes About Crock Pot Cinnamon Pecans:

  • Use raw, shelled pecan halves in this crock pot candied pecan recipe.
  • A regular crock pot or casserole crock pot works for this recipe.
  • Stir the pecans once while cooking.
  • These slow cooker spiced pecans do not get as crispy as an oven version.  If you want a crunchy version, try this recipe instead.
  • Want a glassy, candied pecan? Continue to cook longer until all the sugar is completely melted.
  • If you want to cook on low, these should take approximately 3 hours.
  • Prep these ahead and store in an airtight bag or freezer in the freezer, if desired.
