Oooey, gooey, and delicious!...reminds me of some candy that I've had before but I can't put my finger on it. I used fat-free sweetened condensed milk, and pecans in place of the peanuts, and the results were sooo good! Must keep them in the fridge though, or they will get sticky. I am a big raisin fan, so I knew I'd love these!

I followed this exactly, except I used nonfat condensed milk, and like the previous reviewer it didn't get any thicker. I didn't have any more raisins, so I just dropped them as they were and stuck them in the freezer. They turned out like caramels, chewy and sticky. I don't know if the time needs adjusting or if the nonfat version of the condensed milk was the problem, but I won't be wasting the ingredients for this one again.

These were wonderful! I made them early this morning to take to a friend. I stirred them for 12 minutes and it still did not appear to be getting any thicker (and I was running out of time) so I added an additional 1/2 cup raisins and these worked out great. I put them on cookie sheets sprayed with nonstick spray and popped them in the freezer. Wonderful flavor!
