    Chef #853399's Note:

    There was a candy co., "Tom's," in the South that made these wonderful pink peanut patties. This recipe tastes just as yummy! It's the raw peanuts --they're not cooked to roasted stage. I adapted the recipe from stove-top directions back in the late 60's. It's so easy my sons made it, too, as kids. No scorching, no continuous stirring: let the microwave work for you. I use a 2-qt. glass measuring cup with handle, a wooden spoon for stirring and have a glass lid that fits. The handle helps when the candy hits over 200* The cooling pad of waxed paper over newspaper keeps the wax from sticking to your counter top. Time numbers in brackets are for double batch. See the companion recipe for Pecan Pralines. Both are great for gifts!

      Actually a question. It says the first 7 ingredients. Then vanilla and powdered sugar. But there are only six others listed. I see other recipes for them have butter.

      My husband loves these!!! They came out perfect. I put the to set in a muffin pan with a liner sprayed with pam. I'm going to try to put them in the (nonstick) pan without a liner, just pam spray. I ended up some sugar mixture left in the bowl but all the peanuts were sticking together so I may try to use a slotted spoon next time to reduce the sugar (154%!!!!) of each one. They are soooooo addictive, I don't think anyone can eat just one. Also, I had to put it back in the microwave for a minuite (more or less) before I dished it all out. Putting it over a pan of hot water (while dishing it out) would probably have solved that "problem". I gushed about how easy and good they are to everyone, now everyone wants me to bring them some!!
