Peanut Drops are a Jamaican delight. Best of all, they are healthy and super easy to make. Peanuts are filled with protein, healthy fats, and fiber. Furthermore, since these peanut drops are made without sugar, they are also a low-carb treat to enjoy when a craving for sugar hits. The peanut drops are made with sugar-free sweetener, peanuts, warm spices, vanilla extract, and water. The peanut drops are cooked until the liquid mixture cooks down into an amber-colored caramel and coats the peanuts, then dropped onto a baking sheet, hence the peanut 'drops.' Serve these peanut drops as a dessert or a snack; either way, they will be perfectly delicious. Serve with coffee or Jamaican Ginger Tea.
