This used to be my family's one Xmas tradition. Then we all got healthy. *sigh* I do miss these.... We made these in an electric fypan. But you could probably use a large frypan on the stove top. The cooking time is a guess. But it never seemed to be all that long. Double quantities work well - as long as you have a large enough frypan.
- Put all ingredients into a frypan. The nuts should be in a single layer only.
- Keep the peanuts moving from the outside to the centre of the frypan so they are all coated evenly.
- Boil and stir until the water and sugar have dissolved.
- Allow the peanuts to cool.
I have to confess I modified this recipe a little...I used roasted peanuts (unsalted) and less water to have a crusty even coating. The result? I took some on a Friday for my son's teachers to try. Enough to say they bothered to ring me back home to ask for the recipe!
I made these for our Oz/Nz Regional Tour. What a wonderful little snack and so easy to make!
