This recipe brings back lots of loving memories of my parents. Mom made this for my Dad for as long back as I can remember. Of all the candy that Mom made, this was his favorite.

Ingredients

4 1/2 c

1 Tbsp
butter
1/4 tsp
salt

raw peanuts
13 ounce can(s)
evaporated milk (not condensed)
8 oz

Step-By-Step

1Combine sugar, butter, salt, milk and peanuts in a heavy medium sized saucepan.
2Cook over medium heat until candy thermometer reads 238 degrees (soft ball stage).
3Remove from heat, add marshmallows and vanilla.
4Beat with a wooden spoon until candy holds it's shape. This part seems to take forever. You will think it isn't going to set but just give it time.

Let set until firm. Cut and store in an airtight container.
6This can be frozen and eaten right out of the freezer.
