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).

My grandmother and mother made this for as long as I can remember. Now I am making it and my uncle says if the recipe doesn't turn out and if you have to eat it with a spoon bring it to me. My grnddaughter thinks we have to make many batches of this candy and the people I work with look forward to a batch every year also. Its great and make take a couple of trys but use a spoon and don't waste any of it.
