DIRECTIONS

  • In a food processor, finely grind the peanuts with the dry ingredients.
  • Add a tablespoon of condensed milk and process for 30 seconds. Check if mixture is starting to come together by pressing some into a ball with your fingers. If the mixture will form a ball that stays together well, it's ready. If it is still too crumbly, add more condensed milk and process.
  • Firmly press mixture into a square 8 inch by 8 inch pan lined with wax paper. You can also use greased cookie cutters (simple shapes) to cut pieces out of the candy, or press the candy into molds to shape it.
  • Remove candy from pan by lifting out the wax paper, and cut into smaller squares.
  • Store in an airtight container.
