Pinwheel Peanut Butter Candy

Vanessa Robertson Recipe

My great aunt used to make this years ago and I remember eating it as a child and thinking that it was the most heavenly stuff ever! After trying several different recipes (many of them requiring that the outer part be a divinity), I think I finally found a recipe that tastes the same, but it is MUCH easier and much less messy!

pinch tips: How to Cook an Over Easy Egg


2 lb
powdered sugar
6 Tbsp
melted butter
1 Tbsp
1/2 c
peanut butter

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all ingredients together (except for the peanut butter). The consistency should be that of a pie dough. Separate the dough into four parts.
Cover your pastry board with a small amount of powdered sugar to help with rolling the dough. Roll the dough out like a pie crust. I roll mine into a rectangle. Do not roll out too thin.
Spread as much peanut butter out onto the flattened dough as you want (I just use enough to cover it thoroughly). Then roll the dough up like you would a jelly roll. Refrigerate and then cut into slices. ENJOY!

Sorry if this didn't work for you. I will say that weather and humidity will play a part. Also, you will need to add powdered sugar (as needed) to the dough until it becomes workable.

This is a horrible recipe! I cut everything in half to make a smaller batch and still ended up having to use the whole 2 lbs of powdered suger, so I looked up another recipe and it says you only need 3 tbsp. of milk, not 1/2 cup! Now I have soupy milk and powdered sugar, what a waste.

My mom & niece made this candy but the peanut butter was on the outside and the powered sugar was on the inside. How would you make it like that? It was good.
