  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup white corn syrup
  • 3 1/2 cups raw peanuts
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Amaretto coconut or Amaretto hazelnut liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon almond flavoring


  1. Combine sugar, water and syrup. Cook to boiling. Add peanuts and food color. Cook to 246 degrees F. (Be sure your candy thermometer is NOT resting on the bottom of the pan.) The secret of this recipe is to cook it just the right amount of time. Overcooking will make it hard.
  2. Remove from heat.
  3. Add butter, salt, Amaretto and almond flavoring. Beat until thick.
  4. Pour onto buttered cookie sheet by spoonsful or pour into well-greased muffin pans or muffin cups.
