Vegan Maple Roasted Peanuts

This Vegan Maple Roasted Peanut recipe makes an addictive snack. Once I was on a San Francisco Muni train and was in the process of getting busted for both sneaking on without paying and eating while on the train. As the Muni cops closed in, I clutched my container of Maple Roasted Peanuts tightly.

Vegan Maple Roasted Peanuts Recipe

1 cup maple syrup (Grade B)
½ teaspoon salt

3 cups peanuts, dry roasted, unsalted
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1) Prepare your water bath and get ready to caramelize

Cover a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the maple syrup and salt. Fill a large bowl, that's bigger than your saucepan, with cold water. This bowl of water serves two purposes: if you get burned by hot syrup you can dip your hand in it. It will also be used to cool the hot saucepan after the mixture reaches 245F (118C). Bring the mixture to a boil on high heat, covered. Remove cover and reduce heat to medium low so the mixture simmers without boiling over. Do not stir the mixture from now on because natural convection currents will do the stirring for you.

2) Caramelize the maple syrup

Insert a candy thermometer and bring the mixture up to 245F (118C). After the mixture reaches this temperature it will start to burn rapidly so 245F (188C) is about the maximum temperature we can caramelize pure maple syrup. Remove from heat and dip the saucepan into the ice water for about 10 seconds to stop the caramelization process.

3) Stir the peanuts and spices into the maple syrup, pour and allow to cool

Stir in the peanuts, cinnamon and vanilla extract with a wooden spoon until well incorporated. Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet and separate the nuts as much as possible with two forks. Allow the mixture to cool for about 8 hours before breaking the mixture into individual nut size pieces.
This recipe makes about 8 cups of Vegan Maple Roasted Peanuts.

I'm excited to use this Maple Roasted Peanuts recipe this month! I'm hosting a Peanuts (that's Charles Schulz's "Peanuts") party for my family and wanted to make vegan goodies named for characters, like Apple "Charlie Brown" Betty, The "Great Pumpkin" Pie, Peppermint Patties, well, you get the drift. The Maple Roasted Peanuts will be my centerpiece. Thanks for posting it, Mattie!

Hi kyna, your party sounds so much fun! I hope you're not making something regarding Pig Pen, haha. That would totally be durian pudding right?! I'm a huge Sharles Schultz Peanuts fan. Good luck with the Maple Roasted Peanuts!
