Hot Peanuts

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by June8715

Excellent for a party! The original recipe called for more garlic but, I cut it in half for our personal taste. Peanuts will get hotter the longer they stand. My husband can't get enough of these.

I made these for a bbq and they were devoured. I only used 1 T. of crushed red pepper, that seemed perfect to me, I don't like super spicy. Will surely be making these again and again.
