Red Hots Candy Coated Roasted Salted Peanuts

These Red Hots Candy Coated Roasted Salted Peanuts are an easy little snack that only requires two ingredients and about 30 minutes of your time. I like that in an impressive and boldly tasty treat! Cinnamon goes very well with peanuts and the red color is perfect for the Christmas season... Or they're great for a football game... Or, any ole Tuesday:@) If you like peanuts, like cinnamon, and like a sweet snack... I think you'll like this one folks.

Red Hots Candy Coated Roasted Salted Peanuts
5.5 oz box Red Hots-the $1 size at Walmart and Dollar Tree
3 Tblsp water
2 C roasted salted peanuts
  1. In a non-stick skillet, add candy and water and on ~very low~ heat slowly melt candy while constantly stirring with silicone spatula. You will notice the water turns red quickly, then the candy begins to turn to toffee, then it begins to melt down. Use the back of a spoon to push any candy that sticks to the spatula back into the pan. 
  2. When totally melted and liquid, pour nuts into pan and turn off heat. Stir to fully coat all of the nuts.
  3. Turn out onto parchment paper, spread out a bit and allow to cool completely.
  4. Break apart and store in air tight container.
Enjoy and snack and have a happy day:@)
