Sugared Peanuts

These are pretty delicious. They are perfect for holiday snack bowls, or game day treats. They don't have to be made with peanuts, you can also use cashews. Or if your like me, and you like both peanuts and cashews make a batch of each and mix them together!

5 cups UNSALTED peanuts or cashews

1 c. sugar

1 c. water

1/4 tsp. salt

1-In a large heavy saucepan, combine the nuts, sugar and water. Bring to a boil; cook until syrup has evaporated, about 10 minutes.

2-Spread in a single layer in on a greased cookie sheet, sprinkle with salt.

3- Bake at 300 degrees for 30-35 min or until dry and lightly browned. Cool completely. Store in air tight tupperwear.

*To get the kids eating this, throw in a little creativity. Add some pretzel sticks, and M&m's and rasins they will love it :o)
