Honey Fried Peanuts

After my sister got home from a track meet, she was craving honey rosted peanuts. Since I don't know how to roast peanuts, I made fried ones instead. Mmmmm.... they were good, and you can find the ingredients just lying around in the house!!!


1 cup peanuts(unsalted)

Get out a frying pan. Cover the bottom of the frying pan with honey. Add peanuts. Cover with a drizziling of honey. Fry, constantly turning the peanuts untill the honey is boiling. (Yes honey boils. I was surprised too.) Add salt. Stir. Remove from pan and into a glass or ceramic bowl. Allow to cool. Enjoy!!
