  1. I love this recipe but I am wondering about doubling or tripling the recipe. I tried to dbl it but the nuts were softer & not crunchy like the first batch. Wondering if you need to cook them longer or something? Not sure, you have any idea? thank you

    1. Sandy, There were too many nuts for your slow cooker. If you want to triple, try spreading over a cookie sheet and bake in a 325 degree oven, stir every 15 minutes until golden.
