  • 2 cups peanuts, raw and unsalted
  • 1 cup water
  • cup granulated sugar
  • tbsp honey
  • ¼ tsp salt, or sugar


  1. Combine all ingredients, except the peanuts, into a skillet over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, just until sugar has melted.
  2. Add the nuts and simmer for roughly 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has reduced by ¾ and has turned amber in color.
  3. Reduce heat to low, then shuffle the pan away and back to the heat, constantly stirring, to avoid burning the peanuts.
  4. Once the sugar has completely melted, pour the mixture onto a silicone mat and allow it to cool down completely. You will see that the candied sugar clings to the peanuts, which is a good sign.
  5. Serve and enjoy snacking on these Honey-Roasted Peanuts once cool!
