Bolas de Manjar y Mani // Peanut Caramel Bites

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    Thanks for stopping by my site. I am glad your comment led me here, to this wonderful site on Peruvian food. I only tried it once in a restaurant in the US, and I loved it. I am sure eating authentic Peruvian back makes difference. These peanut manjar balls look delicoius! I think I am going to try to make it for my daugther:) Hasta luego!

    These look like the perfect combination of sweet and salty, all wrapped up in a cute little ball.

    YUM! I would like to sneak a bag of these into the movie theater with me. I enjoyed reading about Peru’s hospitality differences-hosting Argentinian friends was a lesson for me (they stay for hours!)

    ñum ñum! Suena riquisima la combinación de sal y manjar…me imagino que se usar dulce de leche argentino (tipo caluga, Sarcor, que me encanta) en vez de manjar blanco, funcionará?saludos desde el vecino Chile! Muy bueno tu blog ;)

    Tanna – They were easy to make, simple to roll and ridiculously delicious to consume!Anodien – Muchisimas gracias por la visita! Use manjar de nestle pero se puede usar otros tipos de DDL…es una question de textura para calcualar el tiempo necesario para cocinarlo. Puede ser que otro DDL necesita mas o menos tiempo. saludos a chile! :)

    A little bite of heaven and looks easy too. I hope looks aren’t deceiving. I’m going to make this. I can’t wait. Other nuts would be great too.
