Red Peanut Patties

These are just like the old-fashioned ones wrapped in cellophane that you can still buy in some stores today.



  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.
