Sugar-Coated Peanuts


1 cup hot water
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon red food coloring
1 pound (500 g) raw peanuts

Microwave Method:

1. Place water, sugar and food coloring into a large heat-proof bowl. Heat for 3 minutes on HIGH.
2. Add peanuts. Stir well (using a wooden spoon).
3. Cook for 18-20 minutes on HIGH, stirring every 5 minutes until sugar crystallizes around peanuts.
4. Turn out immediately onto a large metal tray. Cool and store in an airtight container.

Note: Turn nuts out of bowl immediately before sugar has crystallized, otherwise they will set in the bowl.
