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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put all ingredients into a frypan. The nuts should be in a single layer only.
  2. Keep the peanuts moving from the outside to the centre of the frypan so they are all coated evenly.
  3. Boil and stir until the water and sugar have dissolved.
  4. Allow the peanuts to cool.
  5. Eat!

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!
