Wow! These peanuts are addicting! They are easy to make and would be great for a party. Make sure to drain very well after cooking or they will be greasy. The recipe comes from the Betty Crocker Christmas cookbook.

Delish! At first I thought the seasonings tasted too raw but after letting them sit for a day they were perfect. Thanks for sharing!
