Preparation method

Using a food processor, mix together sugar, salt, flour and peanuts. You should blend for at least a few minutes, until the mixture becomes finely ground like a dust.

Add a few splashes of condensed milk. Process for another minute so that the mixture starts to come together. If the mixture is too crumbly, add more condensed milk until you are able to form a solid ball. If the mixture already can form a solid ball, it has enough moisture and there’s no need to add more condensed milk.

Forming the candy

Using a spatula, move the mixture to a baking pan lined with wax paper. Press the dough down firmly and evenly. At this point, you can either cut the candies into squares, or use cookie cutters to cut out fun shapes.

Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator so that it hardens. Serve, store, or eat!
