  • 2 cups raw unsalted peanuts
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Pre-heat oven to 350º.
  • In a large sauce pan over medium heat, stir together the butter, honey, and salt.  Heat until butter is melted and bubbly.  Add the peanuts and stir until they are well coated.
  • In a 9 X 13 baking dish, add peanuts in an even layer.  Place in oven checking every 5 and stirring to prevent burning. Remove peanuts whenever they've evenly browned, about 20 minutes.
  • While peanuts are roasting, mix together the chili powder, garlic powder, and sugar.
  • When peanuts are done, remove from oven and transfer to a metal mixing bowl.  Slowly add the sugar mixture, a little bit at a time, mixing well each time.  Continue to add sugar until well coated to your liking (all the mixture may not be necessary).
  • Continue mixing as peanuts cool to prevent sticking.
  • Serve and enjoy!
