Cajun Peanuts (Baked, Not Boiled)

READY IN: 1hr 22mins
Recipe by mailbelle

Use honey roasted peanuts to make this sweet and spicy snack! This is great to make and give as gifts. From one of my favorite cookbooks, "BHG Off The Shelf Cooking." Cook time includes cooling time.

These taste like 5 stars but the texture is not what I thought it should be. Mine are sticky not crunchy. I will make again using melted butter or oil instead of the egg white to try fixing this as well as maybe baking for a longer period of time at a lower oven temperature. REVISED: I put them back in the oven with a 250 baking temp for 30 min. stirring every 10 and they came out DELISH! I suggest trying these and if they come out sticky then try this fix because they are worth it.
