Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 82)

Tick. Tock. Tick Tock…

Only four days left till Christmas!

Are you ready?

Today I’ve got a fun easy recipe for slow cooker spicy nuts.

There are lots of recipes for spiced nuts floating around on the internet.

Most of them call for a ton of sugar and require a well stocked spice cupboard.

This recipe is different.

You need just 3 ingredients to make these slow cooker spicy nuts: cocktail peanuts, butter and a package of chili seasoning mix.

3-Ingredient Slow Cooker Spicy Nuts

I found the recipe while browsing through what I think might be the original cookbook dedicated to Crock Pot Cooking: Crockery Cookery: 262 Tested Slow-cooker Recipes by Mable Hoffman. (Published in 1975 it’s full of retro slow cooker recipes, many of which have stood well the test of time.)

Flavorful, with a nice hint of spice, they weren’t too spicy or overpowering. For a bigger kick, you might want to add a little more chili powder or cayenne pepper.

The only change I made was to cut back the butter from 4 tablespoons to 2.

A perfect party snack, these easy slow cooker nuts would also make a great last minute holiday gift, packed little jars, tins, or cellophane bags tied with ribbon.
