  5. Now, let the peanuts cool until they reach room temperature (this should take about half an hour).
  6. Place the peanuts in a blender and add the teaspoon of vegetable oil, a pinch of salt, a pinch of sugar and a few drops of honey (you can omit the honey & sugar if you're unsure you'll like the result)

  7. Turn the blender on and mix for about 20-30 seconds at a time, then let the blender rest (this is to avoid 'roasting, the blender's engine, if you have a small one). After about 2-3 minutes of blending, your mixture will look crunchy
