31 Days of MOO No. 28 - Honey Roasted Peanuts

Honey roasted peanuts are the easiest snack to make, and one of the delicious for nibbling. You can spice them up (or down) by adding different spices or salts or change the texture by swapping almonds, cashews or walnuts for the peanuts - the recipe is flexible, something I love.

Honey roasted peanuts (or any nuts) make a tasty, crunchy snack with drinks, just right for the cooler evenings of autumn.

Honey Roasted Peanuts

500g unsalted peanuts
1/3 cup honey
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt

Step 1.  Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius.

Step 2.  Line a baking sheet with baking paper. This not only makes clean up easier, it helps to keep the temperature across the sheet even and prevent the nuts burning on the bottom.

Step 3.  Place peanuts in a medium bowl (large enough to stir the peanuts).

Step 4.  Microwave honey and crushed red pepper in a bowl for 30 seconds and pour over the peanuts.

Step 5.  Add half of the sugar and the salt, stirring well.

Step 6.  Spread onto the baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes, making sure to stir the peanuts on the edges in to prevent burning.

Step 7.  Let cool for 2-3 minutes and then stir the peanuts, scraping the honey from the baking paper to coat the peanuts.

Step 8.  Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar and stir again.

Step 9.  Sprinkle with remaining sugar and let cool completely.

Break up the peanuts into single/smaller pieces and store in an airtight container.

    I love honey roasted nuts and am eager to try this but I am unsure of what you mean by red pepper?

    1. Crushed red pepper or crushed red chilli flakes, depending on the brand, in with the herbs at your supermarket.
