“You might not be able to stop eating these crunchy, delicately spiced, maple syrup-coated peanuts. They hit the spot with a nice dark beer while watching the game. This was copied from (recipe by Lynne Valeriote)”
5 cups

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Place peanuts into a large bowl.
  3. Pour maple syrup and allspice into a small saucepan and place over medium-high heat.
  4. Bring to a simmer and turn off heat and let cool slightly.
  5. Pour warm maple syrup mixture over peanuts in the bowl and stir with a wooden spoon to coat peanuts thoroughly.
  6. With a slotted spoon scoop peanuts from bowl and place into sieve and partially drain over the bowl while transferring peanuts onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Repeat process until the baking sheet is full of nuts.
  8. Place any extra nuts on a second baking sheet.
  9. Place baking sheet (s) in the oven and roast for 25-30 minutes or until mixture has darkened in colour.
  10. Be careful to watch that the nuts don't burn- the maple syrup will caramelize and burn easily, so it must be checked frequently.
  11. Pull the nuts from the oven and transfer onto a single layer of parchment on a counter and let cool.
  12. With a metal spatula, loosen the nuts from the paper and store in a fun bowl for eating right way or in an airtight container if making in advance.
