Nancy J.'s StoryThis is a recipe is a delicious clone, of the Famous Davenport Hotel confection. In Spokane, WA.
This candy is world famous.
I have made this recipe many times, for family and friends. Mainly at Christmas time. It is always received with joy and blessings.
Maybe you will make it your family tradition...?? and maybe someday visit this beautiful hotel.
creamy peanut butter
light corn syrup
peanuts...raw or roasted
1In a double boiler over hot water, place peanut butter to heat while preparing syrup.
In a large saucepan combine sugar,
corn syrup and 1/4 cup of the water.
2Cook over high heat to 275 degrees
on a candy thermometer.
Lower heat to medium, add butter,
stirring until melted.
3Add peanuts, cook stirrinf for about 5 minutes untilcandy starts turning brown and reaches 300 degress on the therometer.
Remove from heat, stir in baking soda that has been dissolved in a teaspoon of water.
Working quickly, fold in the warmed
peanut butter, while stirring gently.
At once, pour candy mixture onto a well greased marble slab or a cookie sheet.
Very quickly...spread as thin as possible!
The secret of the candy is quick cooling.
When cold ...break into serving size pieces.
