This is a TOH recipe. It is like a toffee spiced taste. I'm making these for CHRISTmas gifts.
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons corn syrup
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 cups unsalted dry roasted peanuts
- In large bowl, combine sugar, butter, corn syrup, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. Add peanuts, toss to coat. Transfer to 15x10x1 inch baking pan.
- Bake at 300 for 20-25 minutes or until bubble and golden brown, stirring once. Be sure to keep an eye on these. Cool on wire rack; break apart if necessary. Store in an airtight container.
You know what I like most about this recipe - the coating does not overwhelm the peanuts. You get a nice even coat on the peanuts but not clumps of the sugar where you feel it is too sweet. The background flavor is perfect and the recipe is spot on in directions...very easy to follow. Makes for a great treat around the house and great little gifts in a tin for friends. Thanks for sharing. Made for the Let's Party event 2010.
These were pretty good, more like peanut brittle and less like "toffee" peanuts. I was looking for the more golden brown look as well as coating. Don't get me wrong, Karo and butter and sugar are great :-) These were not to die for. Good for my 4th of July Party - the bowl did get eaten. :-) Oh and I doubled the coating based on 1 review. I might consider just doing it as the recipe says as well
I made these last night to get a jump on making Christmas treats. The directions were easy to follow, ingredients were all things I had on hand. I found that 20 minutes was definitely enough time and it may have even needed less time in my oven. Like other reviewers have mentioned, I think I would have liked more coating on these. In the end, I'll probably just stick with the spiced nut recipe I usually use, but thank you for posting this so I could try making something different!
