I found this recipe 26 years ago in a magazine. It is always made as part of our Christmas baking and other time throughout the year. I won first place in a contest at my husbands work with this recipe. WE LOVE IT !!!
These are amazing! Better than York's because the chocolate is so much thicker. The yield is a guess as the recipe is from a friend who made them at Christmas and gave them as gifts. Fortunately, I was one of the recipients.
This recipe has been updated to add more details after questions from reviewers. Cooking time is really drying time for the centers.
This peanut brittle is very light and fluffy. It is important to coat cookie sheets with butter and put in the freezer to get them really cold before you need to pour the brittle. After you pour the candy you should put the pans in the fridge or outside if it is cold, so the brittle will set up quickly and stay fluffy. You could also use another nut if you are allergic to peanuts. This brittle won't break your teeth!
This is what happens when you play "Round the world" and you are trying to find a recipe for Uganda... GROUNDNUT KASHATAS may be made by following the directions above but using roasted unsalted peanuts, chopped or whole, instead of coconut. Or you may wish to use half peanuts and half coconut for GROUNDNUT AND COCONUT KASHATAS. In Tanzania Kashatas are a great favorite in the market place and in Tanzanian homes they are served at tea time instead of cakes or cookies.
This no-cook candy tastes somewhat like the inside of a Reese's peanut butter cup. It can be eaten on its own, or crumbled as a topping for ice cream or cake. (There is also a brazilian beef dish which people in the north of the country call "paçoca". It's more broadly known as paçoca de pilão to distinguish it from this candy.) Manioc is also known as cassava.
Mmmmm! These Frangos will melt in your mouth! They are so easy to make and also make great gifts. After cutting the Frangos into small pieces, I individually wrap each piece in pretty cellophane paper, and then place all pieces in either a cool coffee mug, a pretty box, or a lovely bag. I then take a colorful recipe card and write out the recipe to include with the gift because people always ask me for it once they have tasted these! Please note that the prep time does not include chill time.
