Mixing peanuts in a bowl coating them with butter, sugar mixture

In a large bowl, combine the sugar, butter, corn syrup, cinnamon, and salt. Add the peanuts and stir to coat evenly. Then, spread the peanuts onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, until the mixture is bubbly and lightly golden, stirring nuts every 10 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven, sprinkle on more salt if desired and allow the nuts to cool completely. Once they’re all cooled, break the nuts apart. You might get clusters, which is ok!
