Fire Dust Peanuts

Very quick and very easy. I like to put out a bowl of these when I do Asian-themed dinners.


  • 1 pound honey roasted peanuts (or any other honey roasted nut/mixed nuts)
  • 1 tablespoon five spice powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt to taste (optional)


  1. Pour the peanuts into a large bowl, and mix the spices well in a small one.
  2. With a large spoon, scoop the nuts up and over, while sprinkling with the seasoning mixture, cvoating and recoating the nuts thoroughly.
  3. Taste and add more seasoning or salt as needed.
  4. Store in airtight tin or couple of screw top jars.

Makes about 1 quart.
