Once these spicy peanuts are cooled, they're addictive to munch on. The peanuts are toasted and spicy with a nice flavor of garlic and onion from the Cajun spices. Simple ingredients create a fantastic savory snack. If you're looking for an easy hostess gift, give these a try. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
