Sweet Superbowl Party Peanuts

Rose Candied Peanuts

Of course the Superbowl is about football, but let’s not forget the party food. Whether you are attending another person’s party or crashing on the couch to watch the game Sunday, you must make my addicting Rose Candied Peanuts.

With just four ingredients this is an easy, aromatic snack to make that can be nibbled on while the Seahawks beat the Broncos or added to your lunch bag. This healthy, sweet combination takes only a couple of minutes to make and is easy to transport to a party.

Sprinkling rose water on the peanuts gives them a sweet, floral aroma unlike anything you’ve smelled before.

A bottle of rose water can be purchased at most Asian food stores and other gourmet markets for $5-10. I used roasted peanuts, but try almonds too. The candied peanuts can be stored for about one week if they stay out of your hands that long.

Hot in the Kitchen


3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup water

1 3/4 cup roasted peanuts or almonds

1 1/2 teaspoons rose water

Dissolve sugar in water and bring to boil in small saucepan. Combine the water, sugar and peanuts in a saute or frying pan. Cook on medium high heat, stirring often until the syrup evaporates. Sprinkle rose water on nuts, stir and let cool.

    Very interested in making the Rose Peanuts for Super Bowl Sunday. Did you use roasted salted peanuts from a can, or raw skinless blanched peanuts?

    Thanks, Maria

    • Maria,
      You can use roasted salted or unsalted peanuts from a can, but if you want to cut down on the salt I would use raw skinless blanched peanuts and roast them yourself.
