How to make this Peanut Butter Candy
This recipe looks super simple, and it is, but there is a slight learning curve for spreading out the sugar "dough" and rolling up the peanut butter log, so don't be discouraged if your first few attempts are a little awkward. I haven't made this recipe enough to be good at it. My mom makes it look simple, but my peanut butter sugar candy always looks like I made it with one arm tied behind my back.
Spoon some powdered sugar into a small bowl, about 1½ cups. The measurement doesn't have to be exact, because the main thing you want to accomplish is getting the milk-to-sugar ratio right. Build a small "well" in the center of your powdered sugar and add milk in at about a tablespoon at a time, mixing it slowly as you go. Don't add the milk too quickly. Stir the mixture around until it clumps and thickens like a dough. Add milk as needed, and if it gets too wet, just add more sugar.
Start mixing with a spoon, and as it clumps into a "sugar dough", use your hand to mix. Once you get a "doughball" of sugar, "flour" a flat surface with powdered sugar and place your doughball of flour on it. Flatten the dough with your hand, adding sugar as needed to keep it from sticking. Turn the sugar dough and flatten it out by hand and then use a rolling pin to flatten and spread the dough until it is about the thickness of a tortilla.
Use a spatula to spread a thin layer of creamy peanut butter over the entire surface of the sugar. Then carefully roll the sugar up from one side to the next, creating a pinwheel of sugar and peanut butter. Dust with sugar as needed to keep the log from sticking. Knead the peanut butter sugar log and press and pull and turn to make it as long as possible without tearing.
Use a knife to cut the log into candy pieces about ½" in length. Set the candy aside on a plate and it will firm up over time. Place it in the fridge and it will firm up faster. Make as much candy as you like, but don't go crazy!–it's a bunch of sugar. It's a nice treat, but definitely one you want to eat in moderation. I hope you like this candy, it's one of my childhood favorites.
My mama uses a lot of her kitchen baking gadgets in this video, but you can easily make do with regular kitchen items like a spatula and butter knife, or you can check current prices for some of the gadgets Amazon:
