Buffalo Peanuts

Looking for a snack for your boyfriend who is flying to Vancouver?  Okay… how about… are you looking for a fun snack to make?!  Is that better?

This week, I wanted to make something small that I could give to Dave to take on the plane with him.  Okay… plane… peanuts.  It didn’t take too long to decide.  I came across a recipe I had saved from Bake Your Day, a really awesome blog with some really gorgeous pictures of food.

The original recipe is meant for mixed nuts… but I wanted to keep the airplane theme alive and use only peanuts.  This one’s a winner! … and don’t call me Shirley.

Buffalo Peanuts

Original recipe by:  Bake Your Day

Makes:  2 Cups

Ingredients:

2 Cups Peanuts (i used salted)

1 Tablespoon Sunflower oil (or Olive Oil)

2 Tablespoons Frank’s Red Hot Sauce

1 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, more or less depending on taste

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. salt

Directions:

1.  Preheat the oven to 350.  Line a baking sheet with foil.

2.  Combine peanuts with oil, hot sauce, and seasonings.  Dump onto the baking sheet and spread out.

3.  Bake for 12-15 minutes until toasted.

Here they are pre-baked

Amazing. I could eat them all day… but I really shouldn’t.

Oh, they weren’t too spicy at all. Don’t be afraid!
