Peanut Patties
January 16, 2009

These taste just like the old-time red patties! My mother is a "professional" at candy-making, so I tried some of her tips...Do not add the peanuts initially -- only the sugar, corn syrup, milk -- stir constantly over medium/med-high heat until candy thermometer registers around 240 -- or firm, soft ball forms when poured into ice water. This takes about 12-15 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in butter, vanilla, red coloring. Stir in peanuts, drop immediately onto greased pan. Sticks horribly to waxed paper! I found Planters red spanish peanuts and they were great in this!
