Honey Roasted Peanuts

I wanted honey roasted peanuts to take in my lunch to school, but all we had were regular peanuts. So, I made my own! It was actually really easy.

Take some peanuts and drizzle honey over them in a pan. Heat it up on low and mix it around until they're all coated. Cover a cookie sheet with tin foil and grease it liberally. Pour the peanuts onto the sheet and bake them at 350 for about 10-15 minutes. The honey will start to bubble and carmelize.
Put the hot nuts into a bowl and sprinkle them with either brown or white sugar and a little salt. Stir them and keep adding sugar until they're cool and coated enough so they don't stick.

It's really hard to keep my hands off these... they may not make it to lunch!

Hi! I'm looking for a recipe for honey roasted peanuts for my friend who has Celiac. It's her one craving & for some reason store bought bothers her Celiac. Anyway, your recipe looks sooooo good! Can you please give me some measurements though? I'm not real good at just "eyeing" my way through a recipe. Thanks!
