1/2 cup roasted and salted peanuts

3 tablespoons salted butter 

2 tablespoons grape jelly or raspberry preserves 

Freshly ground black pepper 

1 cup sweetened crunchy corn cereal 

1 cup pretzels or pretzel sticks, broken into large pieces 

1/4 cup candy-coated peanut pieces 


  1. In a large pan on medium heat, add the peanuts, butter, jelly and a few grinds of black pepper. Cook, tossing and stirring to coat, until the peanuts are coated and warm throughout, 8 to 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the cereal and pretzels to the pan. Toss and transfer the mixture to a parchment-lined baking sheet or the counter. Sprinkle over the peanut candies and let cool. Toss again when cool and serve at room temperature.
