Masareal Cebu Recipe

Masareal is one of the very known delicacy in Cebu, Philippines.  It originated in Mandaue City.  As what you can see from the picture below, its pieces are formed in rectangular shape and are packed in white paper.  Basic ingredients are peanuts and sugar.

This is an all-time favorite to the kids and adults like me.  :D  If there is a town fiesta, you surely can find one being sold along the side walk near the church.

You wanna make one by yourself?  Here's how:


1 kilo peanuts
1 cup sugar
1 cup water


1.  Boil unshelled peanuts in water. When done, cool. Shell and grind the peanuts fine.

2.  Prepare a syrup of 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup water. 

3.  Before the syrup thickens, add the ground peanuts, and keep on stirring until thick. 

4.  Remove from fire, and pour over a thin baking sheet. 

5.  Flatten the surface. Cut into 1 inch by 5 inches rectangular strips. 

6.  Wrap each piece in white paper, if desired. 

    Oh boy, my mouth's watering....  :D
