This recipe for honey roasted peanuts is simple, delicious and impressive to your friends.  For whatever reason it’s possible no one has ever thought to make their own honey roasted nuts!  Do people have baseball parties?  I don’t think I have ever been to one, but if such things exsist this would be a huge hit!  Goes great with a “Cold beer, here”.  That was cheesy.  Just make these.
