Introduction: 8 Peanut Snacks for Peanutaholics

About: Inspired by my cat Chili, who is full of fun and energy, I like to share about food and other home crafts with a new twist of 'chili'-fun. (This user was previously called Snowball10)

My brother has nominated me to peanutaholic. One year, he even gave me a pound of peanuts for my birthday because I like them so much. I eat peanuts all the time -- perhaps you would say I am addicted.

Of course, the roasted nuts or a spoonful of peanut butter is utterly delicious in itself, but you get tired of it in the long run. Here are several ways I have taken peanut snacks to a whole new level.

There are many more peanut recipes that I like, but I chose these 8 snacks because they are instant. When I want a peanutty snack, I want it now! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
