Crock Pot Sugared Pecans

I have found another use for your crock pot making sugared pecans.  I made these this weekend and they sure were good.  If you have some extra pecans you need to try this recipe too.
I was surprised to learn that it used powdered sugar instead of regular sugar.
First thing you need to do is turn your crock pot on high and cover it for 15 minutes.
While you are waiting for the crock pot to heat up melt 1/2 cup of butter in a large enough container that you can add the pecans.
The recipe said 16 oz of pecans so I used 2 heaping cups of pecans.
Add the pecans to the butter.
Stir them well to coat the pecans with the butter.
Then add 1/2 cup powdered sugar to the pecans.
Stir well.
In a separate bowl to be used later add 1/4 teaspoon cloves.  I love the smell of cloves.
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Mix them well and set aside.
When the 15 minutes are up put the pecans in the bottom of the crock pot. Cover and cook on high for about 15 minutes.
After the 15 minutes.
Turn the crock pot down to low and uncover the pot.  Cook for 2-3 hours stirring occasionally.
After 1 hour.
After three hours.

Scoop up the pecans and put in a bowl.
Then sift the spices you mixed early on the pecans.  Stir them so that they are evenly coated.
The pecans when they are coated with the spices.
I spread them out and let them dry a little before eating them.
