Recipe by Yemenia

Delicious and easy to make. No oven needed! I got this recipe from a different website, but changed the directions a bit. The recipe calls for roasted peanuts, but mine weren't and it still came out great.

Delicious! This recipe is very quick and easy to make, and has a taste that is like a combination of honey roasted peanuts and peanut brittle. I used roasted Spanish peanuts as they were the only ones that I could find with a skin on them. My family loved these nuts and I will definitely be making them again. Thank you for sharing this wonderful, quick and easy recipe.
