READY IN: 50mins
YIELD: 1 pound




  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Stir together the sugar, chipotle powder, chili powder, and garlic powder in a small bowl; set aside.
  • Stir together the butter, honey, and kosher salt in a large saucepan over medium heat until the butter has melted, and the mixture is bubbly.
  • Stir in the peanuts until well coated, and then pour out into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  • Bake in preheated oven until the nuts are golden brown, about 30 minutes.
  • Stir the mixture 2 or 3 times to ensure even cooking.
  • Once done, scrape the peanuts into a large metal bowl, and sprinkle with the spice mixture.
  • Toss the peanuts to evenly coat with the spice mixture. Allow the peanuts to cool to room temperature, tossing every few minutes so the nuts do not stick together.
