Cinnamon and Nutmeg Sugar Coated Almonds

I've always loved the sugar coated almonds at the airport or Six Flags, but never thought to make them myself. They're great because they make a huge amount and it's a good gift to give around the holidays. They also make your house smell fantastic.

  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 4 c. almonds
  • 1/4 c. water
  1. Spray slow cooker with cooking spray
  2. Mix together sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt
  3. In another large bowl, whisk egg white and vanilla together. Add in almonds and stir.
  4. Add almonds to slow cooker
  5. Top with sugar mixture and stir completely so everything is coated
  6. Set slow cooker to low
  7. Cook for 2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes
  8. Pour in the water and stir evenly
  9. Cook for one more hour, again stirring every 20 minutes
