I’m all about some fun Holiday food gifts, in fact, it’s probably my favorite thing to take to Christmas parties! What’s your favorite thing? Mike’s Hot Honey is awesome for gifting – just as a jar of honey or when using it in a recipe like my Honey Roasted Peanuts!
This blog post is sponsored by Mike’s Hot Honey, but all thoughts are my own. There is a link to purchase honey from Walmart. You can purchase the honey next to the jam and peanut butter!
I love both the large 10 ounce bottles and the 1.9 ounce bottles. And the best part they are made with Chiles and not jalapenos or wasabi – so it actually adds a very flavorful spicy-ness to the honey.
This recipe can easily be substituted with almonds, pecans or chex mix! It is literally super easy and is so delicious everyone will want their own bag.
The bags I used for the gifts were just plain plastic candy gift bags and I tied them together with really pretty ribbon that I found.
They stay good in the bag for about 3 weeks – so make these honey roasted spicy peanuts at the beginning of the season and they will last the entire month!Print
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/3 cup Mike’s Hot Honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 pound peanuts (preferably raw and unsalted)
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- Pre-heat oven to 350º.
- In a large sauce pan over medium heat, stir together the butter, honey, cinnamon and salt. Heat until butter is melted and bubbly. Add the peanuts and stir until they are well coated.
- On a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat, add peanuts in an even layer with room (don’t crowd).
- Cook, rotating peanuts every 5 minutes to prevent burning. Remove peanuts whenever they’ve evenly browned, about 20 minutes.
- 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 the peanuts are coated to your liking.
- Lay peanuts on parchment paper to cool.
- Serve and enjoy!
