Sugar-Coated Peanuts
Peanut Recipes > Candy > Sugar-Coated Peanuts
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 cups of raw shelled peanuts (leave the skins on)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Dissolve the sugar in the water in a saucepan over medium heat
  • When the sugar is dissolved, gradually add the peanuts, stirring frequently as you do so
  • Continue cooking over medium heating and stirring the mixture until the peanuts are completely sugared (ie coated with no syrup remaining)
  • Pour the mixture onto an ungreased baking tray and separate the peanuts with a fork
  • Bake at 300o F (about 150o C) for approximately half an hour, stirring every 10 minutes to ensure the mix bakes evenly throughout.
Sugar-Coated Peanuts

Chris says: Sugar-coated peanuts are surprisingly easy to make, and a popular family favourite in our house.

In fact, this time-tested recipe is very similar to the way we make our own Peanut Van sugar coated peanuts!

This recipe will make about 2.5 cups of sugared peanuts. But if you want to make more, then simply adjust the quantities upwards. And for best results, store any unused nuts in an airtight container.
