    Ingredients
    Makes: 8 

    • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 150g dark brown soft sugar

    Method

    1. In a small bowl, mix caster sugar with salt until blended; set aside.
    2. Stir the honey, dark brown soft sugar and water together in a large pan over medium-low heat until the mixture boils and the sugar crystals have dissolved. Cook the syrup until thickened and bubbling, 10 to 15 minutes.
    3. Stir in the peanuts, remove from heat and mix in the butter.
    4. Place the peanuts into a deep bowl, sprinkle with caster sugar-salt mixture and shake the dish to coat with sugar mixture and prevent the peanuts from sticking together. Let cool.

    GREAT! I SUGGEST USING 1/2 KILO TO 1 KILO OF PEANUTS AND ADJUSTING THE RECIPE SERVINGS & INGREDIENTS ACCORDINGLY! IT LOOKED LIKE A GROUP OF CHIPMONKS WHEN THE HONEY PEANUTS WERE SERVED EVERYONES CHEEKS WERE STUFFED AND THEY HAD TWO HANDFULS OF PEANUTS - LOOKING TO HIDE SOME FOR LATER! GONE IN A FLASH! 1 KILO = 2.2 LBS.!  -  16 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I really liked this recipe and I followed every single instruction just as it is, and I didn't have any problem with it being too watery or runny. I guess the other people who tried this recipe didn't let the syrup part of the recipe cook long enough, therefore, the syrup was too liquidy. I cooked mine for about 15-20 minutes but I guess that depends on the heat settings of your stove. The only problem I had isn't really a problem for me, but even after I used the dry salt/sugar mix at the end, the peanuts still stuck together and were very, very sticky. Other than that, though, this recipe was great! Oh, and I also put some ground up cinnamon in the salt/sugar mix that you add in the end  -  31 Jul 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
