Reviews for Burnt Peanuts
"I love these and so do my family and friends. They are so easy to make. It is a great gift too!"
"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!"
"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."
