Salted Honey Peanuts

I am trying to eat healthy these days. Cutting down on unnecessary calories et al. But let me tell you, it is not easy for me!

Take last night for example. I have stopped keeping junk food at home in an effort to control the munchies. So what did I do when I got serious craving for something to nibble on? I made Salted Honey Peanuts. Yummy sweet and salty peanuts that can get dangerously addictive!

It did not help that this was super easy to make.

First I heated up 2tbsp of butter and 5tbsp of honey together in the microwave.

Then I added 2 cups of peanut to the mixture with 1tsp of cinnamon and a generous pinch of salt. I mixed them really well, coating all the peanuts with the syrup.

Usually these peanuts should be roasted in an oven. But as I still haven’t set up the OTG that my ex-rommie left me; I decided to do it on the stovetop.

I roasted the peanuts in a pan in an even layer on medium low heat. Tossed them after 10 min so that all that lovely bubbling syrup coats the peanuts evenly. Another 2-3 min and it was done.

Letting it cool down was the hardest part of the whole process. :P

They turned out so good! The slight bite of salt to cut the otherwise sweet coating was just right!

I took these photographs in the middle of the night and wasn’t very happy with them. The plan was to take some again in the morning. But a friend came over and they are no more. RIP Salted Honey Peanuts, you were delicious!
