Years ago my Grandmother found this recipe in one of my Granddad's Farm Journal magazines. It has been passed down for 4 generations. We love it. Not just a holiday treat, it is delicious and easy to make.
add milk and sugar to large pan. Cook on med heat constantly stir. (do not go around sides of pan will make candy sugary) after about 8-10 minutes take bowl fill with cold water and put a spoon of the candy in the bowl with the water. If it holds together in a soft ball when you pick it up it is ready to take off the stove. While candy is cooling go to the next step.
Measure out you 3/4 cup of peanut butter and get a tsp for adding vanilla flavoring.
add vanilla and peanut butter to cooked mixture. Stir just enough to get the peanut butter and vanilla blended. (if you wait too long to stir it will harden in the pan) Pour into a buttered platter or square pan and cut before it hardens.
