Harvie is asking: (1 answer)
What is the normal problem when making peanut patties which causes the final outcome to be like soft taffy which is uneatable because it sticks to the teeth so badly. I just wasted 3 cups of peanuts and sugar. The results had to be thrown in the trash.

Which recipe are you using?

Assuming it is some sort of cooked sugar recipe, you will find these are VERY fussy and things like the humidity on the day you make them will affect the outcome. Only use proven/pro recipes for cooked sugars, use a candy thermometer and avoid vague cooking instructions like 'boil for 10 minutes', since you won't get consistent results that way. Even when you do all of the above cooked sugar recipes will probably only turn out well about 1/2 of the time.
