Crockpot Spicy Pecans


Any other nuts would be good prepared as in Crockpot Spicy Pecans - especially peanuts or cashews. Any snack or nut mix makes a great Christmas gift. Just put the nuts in a pretty container and top it off with a bow.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours, 30 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 40 minutes

Yield: 4 cups


  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. white pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 cups pecan halves


In small bowl, combine butter, spices, peppers, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well. Place pecans in 3-4 quart slow cooker. Pour butter mixture over and stir well. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours. Stir well. Cover again and cook on high for 30 minutes. Remove from crockpot and cool. Store tightly covered in a cool, dark place.

If you have a newer crockpot, keep an eye on this recipe. You may need to cook the nuts in an hour or so on low in the first step. Stir the pecans more often if you have a hotter crockpot.
