Step 1: Procedure

1. Put the pan in a high setting

2. Add the sugar, the peanuts and the water

3. Stir the ingredientes with the wook spoon and let the mixture boil without stiring

4. After it boils, from time to time stir again just to mix the ingredients

5. You have to continue cooking until ALL the water evaporates, you will notice that the peanuts get separated from the frying pan

6. Turn the heat down and stir until it is completely dry

Step 2: Finishing

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 1: 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!

    Seems a spice would help with flavour.
    Maybe cinnamon or ginger....
