    diner524's Note:

    A recipe I found under the Moroccan food section for snacks. Here is what was stated about the recipe: "Candied peanuts – or caramelized peanuts – are a popular Moroccan snack sold by street vendors and small shops which also offer roasted hummus, nuts, sunflower seeds, and other treats. Caramelized peanuts are fairly easy to make at home, but you'll need to be patient and work over a low heat to avoid burning the sugar as it caramelizes." I definitely recommend the addition of the salt if you want a sweet and salty peanut.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups raw peanuts, with skin
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/3 cup water
    • 1 pinch salt (optional, but I will add more then a pinch for that sweet or salty combo)


    1. 1
      Combine the sugar and water in a skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens into a syrup.
    2. 2
      Add the peanuts and continue stirring for about 10 minutes, or until the liquids evaporate and a sandy-textured sugar mixture coats the peanuts.
    3. 3
      Lower the heat and continue stirring as the excess sugar in the pan begins to melt. This will take another several minutes. Once the syrup begins to form, it will turn from clear to golden to amber. Stir constantly, and be careful that the heat is not so high as to burn or darken the syrup too much.
    4. 4
      When the syrup is a medium amber color and the sugary coating on the peanuts has glazed, add the salt if using and turn the peanuts out into your prepared pan. Spread the candied peanuts into a single layer to cool.
    5. 5
      Be sure the caramelized peanuts are completely cool before storing in an airtight container.
