  • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup white corn syrup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 1/2 cups raw peanuts
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • Red paste food coloring


  1. Cook sugar, white corn syrup, milk and raw peanuts slowly until they reach the soft ball stage on a candy thermometer. This may take 1 hour.
  2. Remove from heat and add butter, confectioners' sugar and enough red paste food coloring to make a bright red. Stir until the mixture begins to thicken "real good."
  3. Drop by big spoonsful onto wax paper.
  4. When cool, wrap each in plastic wrap.
