DIRECTIONS

  • NOTE: 2 cups roasted peanuts, shells and skins removed, briefly heated in a lightly oiled skillet -- or -- a mixture of both coconut and peanuts may be used in place of the grated coconut.
  • In a hot skillet, heat the sugar until it melts and just begins to brown.
  • Reduce heat and quickly add all other ingredients, stirring well as each ingredient is added. When all ingredients have been added to the mixture, continue stirring for about a minute, making sure everything is well mixed.
  • Scoop the mixture into a pan that has been lightly greased or lined with waxed paper. Let rest for a few minutes. Cut into squares or diamonds while still warm.
  • Let cool and serve.
