Peanut candy is a old fashioned snack, still remember when I was a young girl, my mom will served it during chinese festival, nowdays people is forgeting this snack already. I have been want to do it for a long time, and it is during chinese new year and I made it for my kids, they like it and perhaps in the future I'll make it again but with only sesame to make sesame crunch.

Ingredients

300g peanuts, toasted
30g sesame, toasted
150g castor sugar
1 tsp lime or lemon juice
75ml water
3/4 tbsp maltose (mak nga toong)

Methods:

1. Cook sugar, water and lime juice in a saucepan until it starts to boil. Add in maltose and reduce the heat and continue to cook until the syrup is thick. (To test, drop a little of the syrup into a small bowl of ice-cold water; if it forms into a hard ball, it is ready.)
2. Add in peanuts and mix well. Spread the peanut mixture onto a greased square tray. Sprinkle liberally the toasted sesame seeds over the top.
3. Use a piece of plastic sheet and press quickly to level out the surface while mixture is still hot. Place a piece of greaseproof paper over and use a small rolling pin to roll out thin and flat.
4. Lightly grease a sharp knife and cut into bite-sized pieces. Leave the peanut candy brittle in the tray to cool completely before removing to store in an airtight container.

Thanks QQ for this recipe. It's one of my favourites too. I am definitely going to give a try.
Were you able to get maltose syrup? I did a google search and it says moutsuiker, do they have this in the winkels (shops)?

Enjoy the coming Spring QQ,
Groetjes (greetings)
