Cinnamon & Sugar Crockpot Almonds

I first came across this recipe on Pinterest and it reminds me of the nuts (not the crazy kind) you get on the street in NYC (which I love), but even better!

I have a holiday work party on Saturday and thought these would be a great gift for my co-workers!  The recipe was super easy and super tasty and made my house smell amazing!

Enjoy!

DIRECTIONS
-In a medium sized bowl, mix together sugars, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside
-In another medium sized bowl, whisk the egg white and vanilla until it’s a little frothy. Add almonds
-Make sure the almonds are thoroughly coated in the egg white mixture
-Add cinnamon mixture to the almonds and toss until coated
-Spray crockpot with non-stick cooking spray, thoroughly coating
-Add the mixture of almonds/sugars to the crock pot and turn it to low
-Cook for about 2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes
-Add the 1/4 cup of water and stir well (This ensures a crunchy coating)
-Cook another 45 minutes or so, making sure to stir every 15 minutes to prevent burning
-Line a baking sheet with parchment and spread the almonds flat to cool
-The almonds will be sticky at this point, so make sure you separate them a little and have no large
  mounds.
-Let cool (although they are quite tasty warm!) and store in an air tight container

finished product :)

Enjoy!
