As far as my family's concerned, I can't make this nutty snack too often. In fact, I save pint jars throughout the year as containers for this popular Christmas present.

MY REVIEW

"Very simple to make-you have to watch carefully because it goes from syrup to coated in the blink of an eye. I made a batch with red food coloring and a batch with green food coloring and mixed them after they were done for the holidays-very pretty!"

MY REVIEW

"This is a simple treat to make--you have to really watch as the peanuts boil because it goes from syrup to coated in the blink of an eye. For the holidays I made a batch with the red food color and another batch with green food color and mixed them--very pretty and my family loved them."
