Scroll down to see more peanut candy recipes and other recipes with peanuts or peanut butter.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 cups corn flakes
  • 2 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1 cup roasted salted peanuts


In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, evaporated milk, and corn syrup. Cook over low heat, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until soft ball stage* is reached, or about 236° on a candy thermometer. Add vanilla. While syrup is cooking, in a large buttered bowl, combine cereals and peanuts; toss to blend ingredients. Add the cooked syrup, stirring with a wooden spoon to coat well. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes. Coat hands with butter and form mixture into about 3 to 4 dozen 1 1/2 to 2-inch balls.

*To Test for Soft Ball Stage<br> A small amount of syrup dropped into chilled water forms a ball, but is soft enough to flatten when picked up with fingers (234° to 240°).
