In this post I’m sharing how to prepare easy Barbecue Party Peanuts Appetizer.
Barbecue peanuts are a delicious smoky, spicy cold appetizer with a hint of sweetness that your guests will enjoy.
My personal philosophy when preparing appetizers is to have a nice variety of offerings, some that take a little effort with a mix of easy to prepare. Trust me, it takes the stress away from entertaining.
BBQ nuts are something that most will enjoy munching on too. They’re delicious.
I also enjoy trying out bottled sauces that I purchase as well because there are so many wonderful and unique sauces to try.
I’ve been very fortunate in my blogging career to meet some wonderful people and make new friends. One of those friends is, Diana, with Koss Sauce.
Since they don’t yet carry Koss Sauce in my area, I had to order it online. I wanted to try this sauce because my friend makes it, I drooled over all of the delicious photos posted using the sauce, and I was curious and wanted to know what it was all about.
I’m so glad that I did too and the hubs loves it too. It’s a great blend of things people love in a good quality barbecue sauce.
