Peanut Clusters

Jo Schrepfer


We have here a fudge like peanut cluster. This is not only one of Gramma Bea's favorite treats it is one Jan asked for often when she was sick.

At one point I got a new set of kettles and tried to make these in my new pans. Didn't work because my new stainless steel pans cooled off differently than my old aluminum one. So I dug the old one out of the goodwill box and kept it just for making these candies.

pinch tips: Parchment Paper Vs Wax Paper



2 c
white sugar
1/2 c
karo syrup & fill the cup with milk
2 Tbsp
1 Tbsp
1/2 lb
spanish peanuts

Directions Step-By-Step

Boil the sugar, syrup, milk and cocoa to soft ball stage. You must use a candy thermometer Remove from heat.
Add your butter. Beat until thickening. This can take a while. Your mixture needs to cool while you stir and beat it. Add the peanuts. Mix well. Drop from buttered teaspoons onto wax paper.
If the mixture gets too thick for dropping you can thin it with a little bit of milk.
