Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with foil or wax paper, or spray with non-stick cooking spray (that "release" foil works great).
  2. In a small heavy saucepan, melt the butter, brown sugar and corn syrup over medium heat to dissolve the sugar.
  3. Stir in the five-spice powder & bring to a boil; let boil for several minutes without stirring; when it reaches the "soft ball" stage (238 f) remove from the heat & stir in the peanuts.
  4. Spread the mixture out on the sheet; let stand until it has hardened then break into pieces. Store in a sealed canister.
