Paçoca (Brazilian Peanut Candy)
15 mins (prep 15)
5 ingredients
32 servings
This no-cook candy tastes somewhat like the inside of a Reese's peanut butter cup. It can be eaten on its own, or crumbled as a topping for ice cream or cake. (There is also a brazilian beef dish which people in the north of the country call "paçoca". It's more broadly known as paçoca de pilão to distinguish it from this candy.) Manioc is also known as cassava.
