“Make your own! I was surprised not to find this recipe on here - it's very easy and tastes better than store bought canned. I clipped this recipe from some newspaper. If you like really sweet then try sprinkling with sugar. DO NOT USE MARGARINE - THEY WILL BURN OR GET TOO DARK. Photos taken by me on 2/26/06.”
2 cups

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups peanuts (not raw)
  • 2 tablespoons butter (not margarine)
