    I add the peanuts with the butter! The peanuts tasted better not so cooked. I still stirred the mixture at the peanut addition part but instead of adding the peanuts, I put it back into the microwave and cooked for 3 minutes, added the peanuts and finished following the recipe!

    I love this recipe because it works EVERY time and it tastes great! Try adding 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper and 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper to the recipe. Add additional spices at the same time as the baking soda is added. Enjoy!
