“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)
  • 2 -3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place peanuts in a bowl.
  3. Heat butter and honey together, in microwave or on stove top, stirring well; Toss with peanuts.
  4. Spread peanuts on a cookie sheet and bake at 350F for 5 to 10 minutes; After the 1st 5 minutes check them & stir every 1 or 2 minutes until peanuts are golden brown - the glaze will thicken and darken.
  5. Remove, stir while cooling for 5 - 10 minutes until they no longer stick together.
  6. *Sprinkle with salt (optional) or mix it in with the honey & butter mixture; you can also toss with sugar.
