How do I keep my peanut patties from having a caramel texture
My husband wants a "breakable" somewhat soft sugary texture peanut patty. Mine continually turn out caramelly, chewey and a bit sticky! I spooned out on greased wax paper and they still stick.
I use a standard recipe -
2 1/2 C sugar
2/3 C white syrup
1 C evaporated milk
3 C peanuts
--- Cook to soft ball (approx 1 hr) stiring occasionally ---
Remove from heat and add
1 T butter
1 t vanilla
--- Stir until creamy ---WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?
