Crock Pot or Slow Cooker Chili Spiced Peanuts

I've been infatuated with slow cookers lately and I'm determined to use mine more often... These Crock Pot/Slow Cooker Chili Spiced Peanuts are a great snack for football parties, would be a crunchy addition to your fancy meat and cheese platter for any occasion and... Would make a nice hostess gift for the holidays. I made these with an envelope of mild chili seasoning, you could always choose a spicy hot variety if your crowd likes more heat. This is a nice little three ingredient inexpensive snack folks, don't hesitate to give it a try:@)

Making this for one or two people?
4 oz bag Planters Salted Peanuts from Dollar Tree, 1 tsp melted butter, 1 1/2 tsp chili seasoning. 
Add to 1-2 quart Crock Pot and cook per directions below.

Crock Pot/Slow Cooker Spiced Peanuts-from Simple Nourished Living
24 oz cocktail peanuts
2 Tblsp butter, melted
1 envelope (1.25 oz) chili seasoning mix-I used the 40¢ Walmart brand
  1. Add nuts to vessel, drizzle with butter and stir in chili seasoning until well blended. 
  2. Place paper towel under lid (my suggestion) and set to low for 2 hours. Stir every 30 minutes replacing paper towels if wet.
  3. Remove lid, turn to high and cook for another 15 minutes stirring often.
  4. Serve warm or cool-I suggest allowing them to thoroughly cool.
  5. Store in an air tight container.
