While making a standard Southern version of No-Bake Cookies, Cleave tried the originals, and found at first he didn’t care for them because of the oats in them, but changed his mind after the second day. The he couldn’t help himself. He then suggested I try making them with some other kinds of cereals. So I tried toasted oat O’s, then he suggested we just don’t use any grains at all, and set them in a 9 x 13 pan and cut them like fudge. Just WOW! Using E.S.P (Experimentation, Sensibility, and Practicality), we came up with an amazing candy that was an instant hit! Hope this works out for you as well as it did for me.
Peanut Butter Candy
3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup peanut butter
Bring sugar, milk, and butter to a boil on medium heat. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add vanilla extract and peanut butter. Mix well. Pour into parchment lined 9 x 13 pan. Will set quickly. Cut into 1-inch squares when set.
Done in less than 10 minutes of prep time, and 30 minutes max total. Serve up at this next Samhain party, and watch all your little and big creatures keep coming back for more! Actually, this is great any time of the year.
