Old Fashioned Kentucky Peanut Butter Roll
Lisa Kelly @apronlady
My grown children say the holidays are just not the same if I do not make this candy. It may take a couple of times making this to master it, but friends it’s well worth it!!!!
- 2 1/2 c
- white sugar
- 1/2 c
- 1/2 c
- corn syrup, light
- 1 tsp
- vanilla extract
- creamy peanut butter ( what do choosey mothers use?)
- egg whites
- powdered sugar to well coat working surface
1First beat the 3 egg whites until stiff.
Next prepare the surface to roll out the candy. Cover the surface with wax paper and spread a thick layer of powdered sugar.
Next mix all ingredients except vanilla, egg whites, and peanut butter in a large pot and boil. Stirring continuously, until ball forms. (Like when making fudge or candies) the ball should be hard and have a soft crack. Add vanilla.
Slowly pour the mixture over the egg whites while mixing with a blender the whole time. Continue to mix until the candy has cooled and resembles the texture of marshmallow cream.
Pour onto powdered sugar working surface and roll thin (powder sugar your roller)
Spread a thin layer of peanut butter.
Roll up and cut. (Cut the pieces using a piece of thread to keep its form and layers).
