These are great! I've made these twice and the second time I added a teaspoon of salt to the sugar mixture - oooh, they were really tasty. They tasted like the peanuts in a box of Cracker Jacks. As another person said, just keep stirring - the liquid will evaporate eventually, I promise (it took me 15 - 20 minutes I think.)

These are easy to make and taste great (and I don't even like peanuts). It takes about 15 min to boil all of the water out of the mixture after the peanuts have been added. Doubling the recipe makes it harder to prevent the sugar mixture from scorching so I would suggest making one batch at a time.

These are easy and great. The first time I tried them, I thought I had done something wrong because it took so long for the sugar to thicken up around the peanuts. It takes 6 - 7 minutes. So be patient! Then, my oven tends to run hot so I burned them but they still tasted pretty good. The second time I made them, I baked them at 300 for 25 minutes and they came out perfect.
