  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Spray a baking sheet with sides, or a baking pan with baking spray and set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, add sugar and water and heat over medium heat until sugar has melted and you no longer see any sugar granules.
  • Add peanuts, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  • Continue to cook, stirring frequently until peanuts are sugar-crusted and no liquid remains on the bottom of the pan when you stir.
  • Remove from heat and place onto a prepared baking vessel.
  • Spread peanuts out into as even of a layer as possible.
  • Place in preheated oven. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring at least once.
  • Remove from oven and stir to make sure there are no peanuts stuck to the pan.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Once completely cooled, store in airtight containers or baggies.


Candied peanuts can be stored at room temperature for up to one month.
