Caramel and Coffee Caramel Peanuts

I’ve been thinking a lot about Korea lately.  It’s been quite a while since I was last there and I find myself daydreaming about all the the things I miss from back home. I decided to make a list of all my favourite food that I can’t readily get in the UK with the intention of seeking them out or making them myself. At the top of my snack list is Coffee Caramel Peanuts.

I have to admit that I need coffee in my life. And not just any old coffee. It has to be good quality and very strong. I always pour myself a double espresso shot in the morning with my breakfast before I even contemplate the day ahead. That may sound a bit excessive but I rarely have more than one cup of coffee a day so a double espresso with my breakfast is not going to do me too much harm. That’s what I tell myself anyway!

Caramel Peanuts Coffee Caramel Peanuts Gilded GingerbreadMy love of coffee isn’t just about drinking it. I’ll take a slice of coffee cake or a bowl or tiramisu any day of the week. It is also great in cooking too.  Adding a spoonful of instant coffee to my Andong Jjimdak recipe gets rid of the chicken smell which can overpower and spoil any chicken dish.

Caramel Peanuts Coffee Caramel Peanuts Gilded GingerbreadI Googled Coffee Caramel Peanuts to see if I can buy them in the UK and it seems they haven’t filtered through here yet. I’ve been left with no choice but to make them myself. 🙂 And would you believe that they are super easy to make and taste 10 times better than store bought ones. I wish I would have known that years ago but having said that I probably wouldn’t have any teeth left!

Caramel Peanuts Coffee Caramel Peanuts Gilded GingerbreadCaramel Peanuts and Coffee Caramel Peanuts are very popular snacks in Korea. They are often served as bar snacks with ice cold beer. You can buy them in any supermarket, convenience store and even in cinemas. In fact, these were my go to snack whenever we went to watch a movie. They have such a lovely crunch to them but they aren’t noisy so are perfect for quiet cinemas. They are also happily vegan, gluten free and dairy free. 🙂 If you can’t find unsalted roasted peanuts, just rinse salted roasted peanuts in cold water and dry them in a frying pan over a low heat. Enjoy, just don’t tell you dentist!
