Honey Roasted peanuts

These nuts are beautiful wrapped in cellophane bags and given as holiday gifts or in bowls for a get together.

2 1/4 cup dry roasted unsalted peanuts
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon sugar or colored sprinkles
3/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking pan with foil and spray with nonstick spray. Lay a piece of parchment paper or wax paper on a baking sheet or another heat proof surface for after they are out of the oven.

1. Heat butter and honey in a medium sized microwave safe bowl in the microwave in increments of 40 seconds until the butter is melted in the honey. Pour in Peanuts and stir using a rubber spatula to coat all the nuts.

2. Pour out onto the foil lined baking sheet spread them out as much as possible and bake in the oven for 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes stir with spatula and return to the oven and check it every 2 minutes, stirring every time to evenly bake all of the nuts. Nuts are ready once dropped into a cold glass of water and are hard candy like once removed from the water.

3. Spread out onto the prepared parchment paper, sprinkle with desired amount of salt and sugar then stir again to coat. Let cool and break peanuts into individual pieces and sprinkle with colored sprinkles for decoration :)
