Peanut Cajeta (Fudge) #TheLeftoversClub

peanut cajetaThis month for the #TheLeftoversClub I decided to make something very traditional of my country, here in american fudge is super famous, but in Costa Rica we made cajetas, and we made this sweet delicious candy with powder sugar and condensed milk, I know right, different, intriguing and so delicious.
Is so popular in my country the you can find this candy in every corner, with peanuts, coconut, chocolate, vanilla, well you can imagine all the flavors.
I hope my friend Marrie Matter like this, because is really made with a lot of love.
And you really need to make it, is so easy and am sure your kids and family will love it too.
