Peanut Butter Patties

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 1,034
Yield: 12 (3 inch) patties


2 1/4 cups sugar
2/3 cup corn syrup
1 cup evaporated milk
3 cups raw peanuts
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
red food coloring


In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, evaporated milk, and raw peanuts. Cook over medium heat at a slow boil, 235–240 degrees on a candy thermometer, for at least 45 minutes. Stir continuously. The consistency is correct when a drop of the cooked mixture forms into a ball when dropped into a bowl of cold water, or hard-ball stage.

After hard-ball stage has been reached, stir in the butter, peanut butter, vanilla, and 3–4 drops red food coloring. Incorporate well. Spoon patties on parchment or waxed paper to cool.
