Feast of Lanterns FireCrackers

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Chinese Five Spice Powder is readily available in the spice section of grocery stores. It is a blend of cinnamon, star anise, fennel, ginger, and cloves.

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup raw sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 - 2 teaspoons Chinese Five Spice
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 cups unsalted raw peanuts

Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner and set aside. In heavy bottomed saucepan combine butter, sugar, corn syrup, salt, spices and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce to simmer, cook and stir 1-2 minutes to dissolve the sugar. Add the peanuts, cook and stir over medium heat 3 - 4 minutes, or until nicely browned and peanuts are coated. Quickly dump onto prepared baking sheet, spread out as much as possible, and allow to cool. You may want to sprinkle on a bit more salt as they cool, if desired.
