Groundnut sweet

I missed me some sugar coated groundnuts- groundnut sweets as we call it in Cameroon. I decided to make some. Hope someone finds this very easy recipe useful. Enjoy!!!

  • Preparation time……5 mins
  • cooking time………….30-45mins
  • serves …………………8-10


  1. 1kg of groundnut
  2. 100g granulated sugar
  3. Half cup of water
  4. Cinnamon of vanilla as flavour (will do fine without)

Preparation method

  1. Fry the groundnuts or bake them for about 15mins at a temp of 180 degrees Celsius. Turn the gnuts in the oven from time to time to make sure they do not get burnt.
  2. Boil water and add sugar . Stir until sugar is well dissolved.
  3. Add groundnuts and flavour and stir until the water gets dry.
  4. As soon as the water is dry take the pot off the fire or the sugar starts to caramelize. Pour into a flat tray for it to get cold.
  5. Store in an air-tight container
