The past couple of years for Christmas, we’ve received a big tin of these wonderful  spicy peanuts from a family member. Sadly, this year she was not able to attain a tin. I look forward to them all year, so I must admit I was a little bit disappointed when they weren’t under the tree for us. However, it got me to thinking – how hard could they be to make at home?

After a little bit of recipe sleuthing, I found a recipe that seemed that it fit the bill.  I’m happy to report that I like this homemade version just as much, if not more, than the original. With just the right amount of kick from the chipotle powder, and a nice background sweetness from the honey – you’ll find yourself reaching for another handful.  Consider yourself warned, they are addicting! It makes a big batch, great for snacking on all week long. While I’ll still gladly accept a tin of Hot Honeys if gifted to me, I’m happy to know that I’ll be able to make my own at home all year long.

    Oh my these look great. I love spiced nuts. I could eat the whole bowl. It is hard to find chipolte powder up here in Canada. 🙁

    I love when you can recover a recipe for something you enjoy. I’m happy it lives up to what you’d had in past Christmases.

    Okay, I didn’t find unsalted, skin-less peanuts. I am going out again today to VA so if I only have these that are salted would I just leave the salt out? I would prefer the Kosher salt. I also realized I don’t have chipotle chile powder. I will check it out today but can I just make it myself? Hope your family is well today. Thanks… ME
