ingredients: {makes 3/4 pound candy}
• 1/2 cup finely chopped peanuts
• 1/2 stick unsalted butter
• 1 cup granulated sugar

to do:
shape a pan from a 12×12 inch sheet of foil by turning up edges to form a rectangle about 10×8 inches. sprinkle nuts in pan; set aside. in a saucepan melt butter over medium-high heat. immediately begin to stir in sugar gradually with a wooden spoon {should take about 45 to 60 seconds}. continue to cook over medium-high heat about 6 to 7 minutes till mixture turns golden brown, stirring only enough to prevent burning. pour over nuts in prepared pan. cool; break into pieces. enjoy!
