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!

How to Make Pinwheel Peanut Butter Candy

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix all ingredients together (except for the peanut butter). The consistency should be that of a pie dough. Update: I've seen some recipes call for a lot less milk, so add just a little milk and keep adding until the consistence is like pie dough. Separate the dough into four parts.
  • 2Cover 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.
  • 3Spread 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!
