    • 60g maltose (malt sugar)
    • 30ml light salad oil

    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour5min 

    1. Roast the peanuts in the oven at 150 degrees C for 25 minutes or until cooked.
    2. Put the sugar in a saucepan, add just enough water to cover the sugar, and simmer 20 minutes. Add the maltose. When the maltose has dissolved, stir the syrup until thickened. Test the syrup by dripping a little in a bowl of cold water. If the syrup is still sticky simmer for a few more minutes and try again. When it becomes brittle, it is ready. Mix in the oil, stirring well.
    3. Add the peanuts and stir quickly. Pour into a greased baking dish and flatten. Let cool slightly and cut into small rectangles. Let cool and enjoy!
