Sugared Beer Nuts

These sweet and salty nuts have been a longtime family holiday staple and though they're usually enjoyed in pubs with a pint of beer, we prefer to consume them alongside our favorite root beer.  They're quick to cook up and are a light, crunchy snack that everyone can enjoy.
Savor with your favorite root beer!

3/4 cup water
1 1/2 cup sugar
24 oz raw peanuts

Stir together in a glass bowl.  Microwave on high for 16 minutes, stirring at three minute intervals or until liquid is gone (it's important all the liquid has evaporated).  Pour nuts into a 9x13 glass dish.  Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons salt.  Microwave on high two minutes.  Stir.  Sprinkle with another 2 teaspoons salt.  Microwave 2 minutes more.  Break apart and cool.  Note: the peanuts should be brown and crispy--some microwaves will require additional cooking time.
