Candied Peanuts (Caramelized Peanuts)

5 ingredients

A recipe I found under the Moroccan food section for snacks. Here is what was stated about the recipe: "Candied peanuts – or caramelized peanuts – are a popular Moroccan snack sold by street vendors and small shops which also offer roasted hummus, nuts, sunflower seeds, and other treats.Caramelized peanuts are fairly easy to make at home, but you'll need to be patient and work over a low heat to avoid burning the sugar as it caramelizes." I definitely recommend the addition of the salt if you want a sweet and salty peanut.
