    peanut bites

    These peanut bites are my grandmother’s recipe. She used to prepare them for the birthdays. I remember her sat in her kitchen preparing these little balls and finishing each one with a piece of peanut as decoration.

    These peanut bites are a popular candy in Brazil. It is made with simple ingredients and…little sugar! Its irresistible taste makes you want to eat one after another…

    I prepared these you see on the photos in May, for my sister’s birthday. I was in Brazil and there you can buy ground toasted peanuts. If you can’t find it (here in Italy where I live I can’t find it, for example), just toast them in the oven and ground with your food processor.

    It is a cute idea for a party, or just as a food gift when you are invited to a friend’s house. I am sure you’ll love it ;-).
