This is my entry for Hive Top Chef | Home-Made Halloween Candies. This is a good memory when I was a child, I eat many times in my school.
It is almost Halloween, Suriname people like it, so I make candy from my country Cambodia for to give my daughters' friends and they say is very special to have in Suriname.
This is pulled peanut candy that people in my country Cambodia like to make and sell in the school. Now do not have people make it sell like before.
I not see people sell it ten years already because now have so many different candy from outside the country that people like.
