Hot-and-Sweet Fried Peanuts Recipe

TheseHot-and-Sweet Fried Peanuts are the snack your game-watching party or tailgate needs. These peanuts are so much more delicious than the ones at the stadium or ballpark; our test kitchen professionals said these "dangerously crisp" nuts are "more deeply flavored and crisp than any toasted nut." A fair warning before you find yourself stuck at the snack table: These fried peanuts are addicting. Don't let the word "hot" scare you—you'll only taste the spicy kick initially before it dissipates. A tip from the test kitchen: Cooling the nuts after frying is very important because the nuts will taste chewy when they are still warm. Our test kitchen also recommended that the nuts be slightly wet when tossed with the powdered sugar, so don't let them dry too long. You can store these Hot-and-Sweet Fried Peanuts in an airtight container in a cool place for up to five days, so make them ahead to lessen your tailgate to-do list.
