Sugared crock pot pecans

It feels strange to be sitting down to write a post for the third day in a row. Imagine how I will feel after Day 12! Maybe I'll just keep on going for the rest of December! Ok, that may be a bit ambitious. I am having so much fun making, eating and sharing all of these yummy holiday treats. Our kitchen is overflowing with goodies, tempting me with every trip I make through the kitchen. Today Dan juiced a bunch of veggies for lunch, which I am sure has my body terribly confused. KALE?! What is this??

Here we go with Day #3 of Christmas Treats! No kale recipes for now.

The thing I love about this recipe, aside from being totally addicting and yummy, is that it is a crock-pot recipe. Crock pot cooking equals easy! These sugared pecans are great to have in a bowl for grazing during holiday gatherings. They are also a perfect gift. Throw some into a mason jar and tie a ribbon around it.

Place the following ingredients into a crock pot:

4 cups pecan halves

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon all-spice

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

Cook on Low for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Pour into a bowl and let cool before serving. Enjoy, friends!
