The perfect snack mix to have out during the holidays! These Sweet and Spicy Nuts are made in the slow cooker. What could be easier?!


1 cup pecans
1 cup walnuts
1 cup peanuts
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon chili powder


  1. Line your slow cooker with foil and spray with non stick spray for easier clean up.
  2. Melt butter and stir together with syrup, hot sauce, salt, cinnamon, garlic powder, and chili powder.
  3. Pour mixture over nuts and stir together well. Transfer to slow cooker.
  4. Cook on high for 30 minutes, then switch to low and cook for another 30 minutes. Stir the nuts every 15 minutes.
  5. Remove the nuts from the slow cooker (you should be able to just lift out the foil). Spread nuts out and let them cool.
  6. Nuts are fine at room temperature for a few days or you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for longer storage.
