Delicious treat! Had some raw peanuts and needed ideas. This turned out great and everyone loved them. The salty, spicy taste was complemented by the sweet surprise of dried fruit (I substituted dried cranberries because that's what I had on hand). Thanks so much for posting this recipe!<br/><br/>Made again (Dec. 2013) and just thought I would clarify (since I got confused this time) that you roast the peanuts in the butter first. Then, when you remove them from the oven, toss them with the dry ingredients in a bowl and add the cherries/craisins. Still love this recipe!! Yum!
Spicy. And very popular on the hors d'oeuvre table. Loved the size, look and taste of the cherry option.
