In a large pan or a medium pot, over medium heat, combine the sugar and water.
Stir until sugar is dissolved. The water should start to turn clear.
Add in the peanuts and continue cooking.
Stir frequently. Mixture will get all nice and bubbly. This process will take about 10-12 minutes. You want the syrup mixture to dissolve until it is thick and gooey.
At this point, you'll want to start to preheat oven to 300F degrees. Once the mixture becomes hard to stir and becomes a super thick, sticky mixture, it is ready for the next step.
Spread peanuts onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (this will make it easier to remove later). Spread them out and separate them as best as you can.
Bake in 300F degree oven for about 12-15 minutes, stirring around every 5 minutes. Peanuts should start to look whitish and crystallized-looking.
Take out of oven and allow to cool before serving and storing.
These can be stored in an airtight container and will last for months. If you'd like, you can use lightly salted peanuts if you like that sweet and salty combination of flavors.
