This is to collie. Please notice that i had left off the butter or marjaine. Please add that to the ingredients before you make candy. The recipe is an old time recipe from my Mother in law that has been dead for years. I found it one day in a book, tried it and loved it. By useing a candy therometer it is so easy to make.
I just made this and mine came out like powder! LOL It really is powder! What did I do wrong? What temperature do you have the burner?
Love it

did you use a candy themomter? Did you let it get to the hard ball stage before you added the peanut butter and vanilla? If you followed the directions it is real easy to make. My 10 year old can make it. Give it another try and i bet it will turn out good.

When you say do not stir, do you mean the whole time it is cooking or what. I tried making this tonight and it tasted a little burnt, but overall it is good old fashion hard candy. So much better than with marshmellow cream. I had a hard time getting my therometer to get to the hard ball stage which is 250 on mine. About how long do you cook yours?
well common sense would tell you that you have to stir it the whole time. your putting sugar in it and butter and milk you have to stir. and it's 2 cups of suar and 1 cup of milk and 1 4th of butter and stir and let it come to a boil and when you see little brown things in it then it is almost ready. butter your plate or platter before handso it won't stick. of you can also have a cup of cold water to test it with. just drop a tiny portio into the water and if it makes a ball it is ready to pour in your plate or ur platter. i never use salt and hardly ever the flavoring. still will be hard. use a half a cup of peanutbutter.

Quick and Easy

1 1/2 boxes powdered sugar
18 0z. jar peanut butter
1 stick softened margarine
Combine ingredients with a fork so that all of it is mixed together well. Spread it in a glass dish and cut in squares. Refrigerate until firm.
You can decorate the candy with English Walnut kernels and it is delicious.

I did not realize i had left off the butter until i read your question. let me put the recipe down again. 2 cups of sugar,1/2 cup of milk,dash of salt, 1/4 pound of butter or margaine. mix these in a heavy sausepan until it starts to boil. do not stir no more. when the candy theromoter reaches hard ball stage remove from heat and add 1/2 cup of peanutbutter and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. with the butter or marjaine in there it shouldn't stick. mine never has. it usually takes about 2 minutes to reach the hard ball stage. Give it another try you will love it. i'm sorry i messed up when i put the recipe down the first time.
I buy my butter by the "tub", do you have any idea how much 1/4 pound would measure on the measuring cup?

That is exactly right. I stand beside my sausepan and watch my candy therometer (not stirring) until it reaches hard ball stage. I boil it pretty hard and it takes about 2 minutes. As soon as it reaches hard ball remove from the heat and add peanut butter and vanilla.
What size pan?
