Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
1 cup granulated sugar

2 tablespoon white vinegar

1 tablespoon water

1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds

14 oz skinless roasted peanut

Preparation

  • Combine sugar, vinegar and water in a microwave-safe casserole dish until well mixed and cook in the microwave on high for 4 minutes, tilt bowl to swirl syrup around the dish and continue to cook one minute at a time without stirring until mixture is golden and reaches 300° F on a candy thermometer.
  • While the sugar mixture is caramelizing, line a 6 1/2" x 10" cake pan with foil and generously grease the foil.
  • Sprinkle half the sesame seeds and all of the peanuts evenly onto the pan.
  • When the sugar mixture has reached the required temperature, carefully pour the sugar mixture over the nuts in the baking pan.
  • Smooth the surface by pressing down with another pan of the same size, grease the bottom.
  • Sprinkle with the remaining sesame seeds and cool slightly.
  • While candy is still warm, remove from pan by lifting the foil. Cut into 2" by 1" pieces and then allow to cool completely.
