Mall Nuts: roasted brown sugar cinnamon pecans {recipe}

You know when you go to the mall and you turn the corner and the sweet amazing aroma of roasted nuts hits you in the face and it is heavenly?! My girls love those little snacks. I wanted to make some of those sweet treats at home for an after-school snack. Here is how I did it.

I took one egg white. I added 2 tablespoons of water and whisked it until it was foamy. I then added 2/3 cups of brown sugar and 1/3 cup white sugar, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp. of salt. I then threw in a 10 ounce package of pecans. I stirred until every pecan was covered.

I then coated my crock pot with cooking spray and poured them in. I cooked them on low for about 3 hours and stirred them every now and then.

When they were about done, I put them on a parchment paper line cookie sheet and put them in the oven for about an hour at 250 degrees.

The girls said they actually tasted like those nuts from the mall. Mission Accomplished!
