    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    Peanuts are a great source of Vitamin E. They help lower the bad blood cholestrol, reduce heart attacks and also prevent some types of cancer. They are high in protein, dietary fibre and carbohydrates. Peanuts are one of my favourite snack item, too! This candy is easy to make and it clicks easily with any and every kid!!

      Nice to know peanuts are good for lowering cholesterol. I thought it was the other way around and was keeping peanuts hidden from my husband. Almonds and walnuts are known to be good for lowering cholesterol, but I was unaware about peanuts. You dont mention if the peanuts used are raw or roasted, salted or plain
