 Barbecued Peanuts


Barbecued Peanuts

I have made these for well over 20 years. I make them a lot at Christmas. They make great gifts or a tasty snack. They're perfect for munching on while watching a movie or ballgame. Men tend to love these!
For gift giving, there is no need to buy an additional container. Simply remove the label from the jar and make a cute label using your computer. If you like, you can cover the lid with a cute round of scrap fabric and a piece of coordinating ribbon.
Bonus: You won't be able to pack a handful or so of the peanuts back into the jar. You'll just have to eat these! :)

1/3 cup barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Dash or two of cayenne pepper (optional)
1 jar (16 ounces) dry roasted peanuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. If your oven tends to be a bit hot, set it at 300 degrees.
Combine the barbecue sauce, butter and cayenne in a large bowl.
Add peanuts and stir to coat evenly.
Spread onto prepared baking sheet.
Bake, uncovered, for about 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so.
Spread on waxed paper and cool completely.
Break apart any peanuts that are stuck together and scoop nuts back into jar or another airtight container.
