I love using my slow cooker mainly because of convenience! That’s totally reason enough, right!? Whether making a meal, drink, or preparing a gift slow cookers simplify life and I just love that! And the savory fragrance that fills my house when I prepare Crock Pot Sugared Pecans is like the cherry on top!
This recipe is as simple as stirring ingredients and the results are amazing! And super fun…if you happen to have a pecan tree in your backyard, there’s nothing more exciting for your sweeties then incorporating your own home grown ingredients! If you’re looking for recipes to gift to family and friends, I highly recommend Crock Pot Sugared Pecans. They’re great as a snack and an awesome topping for any dessert!
