I have been blessed with wonderful cyber friends who i've known for years, thanks to cyberworld. How close and good friends we've become? If meeting with each other, texting/talking over the phone for hours, sharing our ups and downs, receiving care packages, cards and more from each other will not count, then i don't know how else to describe what a good and wonderful cyber friends i have.

Received a bday package from VERONICA and in the package is this addicting peanuts among other yummy stuff. This is so good that i could finish a pound of these in one seating, i kid you not=;) I know, i know it's not good but hey...

So i have to ask for the recipe, click her name for her version. The only thing i changed was the kind of peanuts. Her reicpe calls for peeled while i used the unpeeled because it was what i had. But really, there's no difference they are both as good.


1/3 cup white sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons chipotle chile powder

1/4 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 pound skinless peanuts (i used with skin)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Stir together the sugar, chipotle powder, chili powder, and garlic powder in a small bowl; set aside.

Stir together the butter, honey, and kosher salt in a large saucepan over medium heat until the butter has melted, and the mixture is bubbly. Stir in the peanuts until well coated, then pour out into a 9x13 inch baking dish.

Bake in preheated oven until the nuts are golden brown, about 30 minutes. Stir the mixture 2 or 3 times to ensure even cooking. Once done, scrape the peanuts into a large metal bowl, and sprinkle with the spice mixture. Toss the peanuts to evenly coat with the spice mixture. Allow the peanuts to cool to room temperature, tossing every few minutes so the nuts do not stick together.


  1. I'm so happy you liked those nuts! I have had to stop sending out birthday packages to my cyber friends b/c of the cost but I'm glad you liked the one I was able to send. I'm going to try them this way, with the skins.

  2. These nuts look great. It's now on my to-do list.
