This recipe is from my sister who used to make this for large family gatherings. Perhaps she still does but since I live well over a thousand miles away, I wouldn't know. My oldest daughter Cindy locked herself in my bedroom and ate a whole bag of circus peanuts when she was 3 years old. She refuses to even taste this salad!

30 circus peanuts (10-oz pkg)
1 large box orange jello
1 #2 can crushed pineapple
1 large Cool Whip

Dissolve jello in 2 cups boiling water. Add peanuts and stir until they melt. Drain pineapple, saving juice. Add water to the juice to make 1 1/2 cups; add to the jello mixture. Let stand until partially set. Add the pineapple and cool whip. Refrigerate.
