Add salt, vanilla and cinnamon. Microwave mixture for about 22 seconds until butter melts completely. Stir mixture with large spoon.
  2. Pour heated honey syrup mixture over the nuts in the bowl. Stir nuts with a large spoon to coat with mixture.
  3. Spread coated nuts on a large, un-greased baking sheet in a single layer. Use aluminum foil as a liner if you don’t want to scrub the baking sheet when you’re finished.
  4. Bake coated peanuts at 350 degrees for 5 minutes, then remove nuts quickly and stir them around to event the coating. Return nuts to oven for another 5 to 7 minutes at 350 degrees until golden.
  5. Remove honey-roasted peanuts from the oven and immediately transfer hot nuts to a large, clean mixing bowl. Sprinkle nuts with 2 to 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar while mixing with a large spoon. Sprinkle on additional salt to taste, if desired. Lets nuts cool and store in a glass or porcelain jar.
