Ingredients
  1. 2 cups raw almonds
  2. 2 cups shelled walnuts
  3. 2 cups pecan halves
  4. 1 cup white sugar
  5. 1 cup brown sugar
  6. 1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  7. 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  8. 2 egg whites
  9. 1 tsp vanilla
  10. ¼ cup water
  11. 1 bag peanut M&M's, optional but recommended
Instructions
  1. First and foremost, liberally grease your slow cooker with cooking spray. Place the nuts in the slow cooker and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg whites and vanilla until combined. Drizzle over the nuts in the slow cooker and use a spoon to toss the nuts in the egg white mixture until coated.
  3. Meanwhile, in a larger bowl, combine the sugars and spices and stir to combine. Pour over the nuts and gently toss to coat.
  4. Turn the slow cooker on LOW and cook for 3 hours, stirring every 20 minutes. During the last 20 minutes of cook time, drizzle in the water and toss to coat. Once nuts are done, spread onto a foil-lined baking sheet to dry and cool. Sprinkle with M&M's as they cool or after, up to you. Break into clusters and serve.
Notes
  1. Use 6 cups of Country Spoon's Deluxe Nut Mix, available at the Red Barn to make this recipe even easier!
