This was my first time making candy that required a thermometer, so I was nervous about making this. I was always told it was hard to get a recipe right when a thermometer was involved. Well, this was the EASIEST recipe and the results were out of this world! I made it for gift baskets for Christmas and literally everyone asked for more! I followed the advice of previous testers and used 1/2 cup of white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar. I upped the peanuts to 1 1/2 cups (although I might throw in an extra 1/2 cup on this next batch to make it 2 cups), and I added 1 tsp of vanilla. I used roasted peanuts, so I didn't add them to the sugar mixture until it reached 250 degrees and then continued cooking until the mixture reached 305 degrees. Perfect!!! Thanks for this recipe! I'm ready to try some new candy recipes now!
