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.

  2. 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.
  3. If the mixture gets too thick for dropping you can thin it with a little bit of milk.
