If you love honey roasted peanuts as much as my family does, then I think you are going to love this homemade version.

I love that they are made with just a few ingredients – raw peanuts, butter, honey, and salt – and a little bit of time to roast in the oven. If you prefer them with just a hint of a spicy kick (I do!), then I absolutely recommend adding in the little bit of cayenne pepper!

To make them, I preheat my oven and then melt my butter in a medium skillet set over medium heat. Then, I stir in my raw peanuts, honey, salt and cayenne pepper. This only takes a jiffy, but just make sure that you get your peanuts well coated.

Then, I just pop my skillet into the oven and roast the peanuts until they are golden, about 20 minutes.

These little honey roasted peanuts are perfect for just having around for a sweet, spicy and salty snack or for serving as a little nibble while watching the game. But, I have to tell you, once you start serving them when you have friends and family over, everyone looks for them when they come over!

Here’s my Honey Roasted Peanuts Recipe. I hope you love them as much as we do!

    Will the roasting process dry them out/crisp them up or will the finished product still be sticky/chewy? I’ve made things like roasted pumpkin seeds and chickpeas but never tried honey roasting before. 🙂

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      These have never turned out dry when I make them. You may be able to tell a little about the texture from my photos. Enjoy!

    Simple and Good recipe. I usually do it with only 3 ingredients – peanut, table salt and a pinch of oil. Never tried with honey and butter. Will give it a try.

    How long will these keep and in what type of container? thanks!

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      I keep them in an airtight container on the counter for up to a few days, but generally they disappear rather quickly when we have company over.
