Candied Peanuts
Recipe type: Adapted from Eating Nigerian
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • ½ cup of water
  • 2 cups of raw or blanched or raw peanuts, almonds or cashew nuts (peeled or unpeeled works. I used the peeled kind)
  1. Pre heat oven to 275-300 degrees
  2. Meanwhile, in a pot, combine the sugar and water and stir for the sugar to dissolve
  3. Pour the peanuts into the sugar and water mix and stir constantly until there is no sugar syrup left and the peanuts have been completely coated. (it will look dry). This process takes about 25.30 minutes
  4. Pour the now sugar coated peanuts into an ungreased baking sheet; making sure to spread it out to prevent clumping. Bake for about 25 minutes; making sure to stir constantly to prevent burning
  5. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow for the peanuts to cool before serving.
  6. Store any excess peanuts in a jar with a tight lid
