How to make it

  • In a large pan combine the sugar, corn syrup, milk and peanuts.
  • Cook slowly until the mixture forms a soft ball (you will know when!).
  • Remove from heat and add the margarine, coloring and confectioners sugar.
  • Stir until the mixture begins to thicken.
  • Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper or baking paper, or form into discs using a metal circular cookie cutter for a mold. Let the pattie cool before popping it from the mold.
  • Store in an airtight container or wrap individually with plastic wrap.

    I have raw peanuts in the pantry and can't wait to give this a try.

    OMG, I haven't thought of those things in years. My step-dad loved them (still does, but I think they're too hard on his teeth now). I never liked these things personally, but you gave me a great dose of nostalgia.
