i bet if u add cinnamon to it it will taste like the ones u get at fairs

 Is there anyway to make these spicy as well as sweet? I was thinking of putting some chili powder in with the peanuts to see if that works with it. 

Let me know if it worked!

mmmmm seems tasty :D

nice. almost like a praline. I'd suggest waiting to add the nuts until just before the sugar caramelizes. that way you have a clearer view of the color of the sugar. this tip will help anyone who has had a problem with burning them. otherwise, great instructible. try adding a little Cinnamon to them. tastes great. so yeah. keep up the good work.

marcelo7300 (author)WesDoesStuff2008-06-06

Thanks for your comment. The peanuts have to be added from the beginning because I used raw peanuts, so they have to be toasted with the heat of the sugar. This is different to praline where you have then to crush the result I think. If you add the peanuts after the sugar caramelizes, you possible get a kind of nougat and you don't get the texture that is got with this recipe. I haven't try with cinnamon, I've try with vanilla. That's a good idea!!! I will try it thanks :D
