  1. This is the recipe my Mom always went by when I was a kid. By far the best peanut butter roll recipe there is! After you add the syrup mixture to the egg whites, it is best to use a stand mixer. I have burnt up plenty of hand held ones making this candy. Lol The way I can always tell when it's ready to roll out is that it will lose most of its shine and the consistency will change. You just have to watch it and it does take a little bit in the mixer to achieve it.


HI...I am a stay at home mom of four little angels. I have four young children that were all born within 27 months. My oldest daughter is 4, middle daughter is 3 and my son/daughter twins are 2. I LOVE them with all my heart and love preparing them meals. Cooking is something that I really enjoy sharing with them. They all four love to help in the kitchen. From a very very young age, I would sit them on the counter next to me and let them participate in preparing meals. My husband also enjoys helping out. We are a very close loving family!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
