Recipe by lisambaker
I tried another peanut pattie candy and it turned out like peanut brittle. So this sent me on a mission to find another one. I just found this recipe. And am going to try this over the weekend. I will let you know of my Success. I got this recipe from a website called Taste of Home (from Evelyn).

I just made this recipe....and it really tastes great... it isn't the recipe I am looking for, though...it is too chewy...like a chewy praline. I want one that is sugary crunchy soft...that actually breaks apart..this one you'd have to pull apart. Also.. I felt it had way too many peanuts in it... I like the pink stuff...this is all peanuts. Also.. not sure how long I was supposed to stir it...what is creamy? It was 100% peanuts. They looked pretty...I put them into a muffin topper pan...which is the perfect size for a huge patty...and it worked out great. I would make these again...but I would leave out l/2 of the nuts.
- 2 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 2⁄3 cup Karo syrup, suryp
- 1 cup rich milk or 1 cup canned evaporated milk
- 3 1⁄2 cups raw peanuts
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 drops red food coloring
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine and place on heat sugar,Karo,and milk. Mix well and add the peanuts and cook slowly stirring until a small amount forms a soft ball.Remove from heat and add the butter,vanilla and food color. Beat until mixture gets creamy and pour on cookie sheet to form into patties. Can be poured into muffen tins to about 1/4 inch thick to make thick sides.
- This recipe was given to me by a very dear friend Barbara Stearns. This was a family recipe , one of several she gave me. These tast just like the ones from the store if you can find them. Any peanuts will work in theis but the small white ones are what are the best to use if you can find them. Enjoy and feel free to pass this recipe on to some one else.
- Again this recipe is from another site. So I think that the soft ball is from a candy thermometer. :).
