Put the candies over a marble (or similar) to cold them

While still hot, try to separate the peanuts with the spoon so that they remain individual

and finally... Don't eat them all!!! They are for your children!

TIP: Although peanuts are my favorite, you can use walnuts, almonds or any nut!

TIP 2: To clean, simply fill the pan of water and wait a couple of minutes until the sugar dissolves. No need to scrub!
