Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups sugar
  • 1.5 cups brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4.5 cups raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions

  • Spray your slow cooker with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, add the sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk together.
  • In another large bowl, add the egg white and vanilla and whisk until frothy.
  • Pour the almonds in the egg mixture and toss them around to coat thoroughly.
  • Pour the coated almonds into the sugar mixture and toss to coat.
  • Pour the entire mixture into the slow cooker and turn to low.
  • Cook for 3-3.5 hours, stirring every 20 minutes. It will look like not much is happening for a long time but your house will smell good!
  • After 3 hours, pour in 2 Tablespoons of water and stir well. If they look dry, add another 1 Tablespoon of water. This is going to make the crunchy coating and things will start looking right.
  • Replace cover & cook for another 20-30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • When done, pour the almonds onto the prepared baking sheet and separate any that stuck together. Let them cool slightly to harden then enjoy!
