Peanut Candy

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.
