Peanut Butter Candy

Peanut Butter CandyGrowing up my mom made peanut butter candy all the time.  It was simple to throw together anytime a sweet craving hit you.  We would find bowls of it in the kitchen and walk by and snag a bite or two.

I haven’t thought about this recipe in a long time.  Looking through the good old recipe box I found the recipe.  We had my nieces over to play and I thought it would be fun to make.  This no cook recipe is great to do with kids.  Although it takes a lot of muscle to mix it.  The kids loved it and had plenty to take home to share.  I can’t wait for Mr.Picky to get home and try it because his favorite candy is peanut butter cups.

The texture of this candy is almost like a chewy caramel but more dense.  It has a wonderful peanut butter flavor.  If you are feeling extra naughty you can cover it with melted chocolate like we did.  Sometimes my mom would just roll it into balls and then into chocolate chips.  Or if you are feeling fancy roll it into balls and dip it into melted chocolate.

Peanut Butter Candy:

  • 1/3 cup karo syrup
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar

Stir together karo syrup and peanut butter until well combined.

In a separate bowl sift together dry milk and powdered sugar so there are no lumps.

Combine the two together.  This is a slow process of mixing slowly and sometimes works best with your hands.  Eventually you can knead the candy on the counter to get it smooth.

Store at room temperature but away from heat so you chocolate does not melt.
