  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a large heavy saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup and water. Cook and stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved; bring to a full rolling boil. Boil, stirring constantly, until a candy thermometer reads 290 degrees F (soft-crack stage).
  2. Meanwhile, place melted peanut butter in a large greased heat proof bowl. Pour hot syrup over peanut butter; stir quickly until blended. Pour onto a well-buttered baking sheet; cover with a piece of buttered waxed paper. Roll mixture into a 14-in. x 12-in. rectangle. While warm, cut into 1-1/2-in. x 1-in. bars using a buttered pizza cutter or knife. Cool completely.
  3. Melt confectionery coating; dip bars and place on waxed paper to harden.


  • Editor's Note: The accuracy of your candy thermometer is very important. *Milk chocolate confectionery coating is found in the baking section of most grocery stores. it is sometimes called candy coating and is often sold in bulk packages of 1 to 1-1/2 pounds.

I was really disappointed in the way this recipe (didn't) work out. I don't know if I did something wrong but the pb mixture just crumbled to pieces when I tried to cut it. Oh well.
