I made two batches of these this morning and I can't believe how easy and tasty they are. My husband is a fan of this type of peanut and I will now save money by making them myself. Thankyou so much for sharing.

This is great! It is easy to make, and makes a wonderful gift. I shared the peanuts with several people, and all gave rave reviews Thank you for sharing this!

I was finally able to make it after the holidays, but I had my relatives go back to their homes and I split this in two for their gifts baskets. But that left me without peanuts, I was just able to try them. Now I've got to make them again. I loved your instructions, were very easy to follow. Thanks for sharing.
