Your going to fall in love with these Instant Pot Candied Nuts!  We used pecans for Instant Pot Candied Nuts but you can use any kind of nuts you like.  We have used walnuts and almonds before. I have to say I LOVED the walnuts! Mixed nuts are great too.

I mean really any nuts are great made this way. Maple syrup and cinnamon and sugar are so yummy together. 

We use a 6 quart instant pot . It’s a great size for everything from family meals to desserts. 

 

I used to make nuts in the oven and the recipes is delicious but it involved watching the nuts too much for me. This is so much easier and quicker. I’m all about saving on time.
