Thank you so much Karen for requesting this recipe!! They turned out really yummy and were the perfect little snack!  She sent me this recipe from a Weight Watchers cookbook and, after seeing all the ingredients, knew I’d love this.  They remind me of honey roasted peanuts except with a kick of cayenne pepper and chili powder for spice.  You can cook them for 10 to 20 minutes if you want them a bit mushy inside or around 35 minutes like I did if you like them crunchy!  Perfect to throw in a dish for an upcoming party or when you  have company over and you save a ton of calories from traditional salty peanuts!  Feel free to try and type of seasoning or spice you like, you really can’t go wrong.  Hope you enjoy them!
