Directions

  1. Put the peanuts through a meat grinder with a medium blade. Then place them in a saucepan with the 1/2 cup of sugar and the milk. Mix well.
  2. Place the peanut mixture over medium flame and cook, stir constantly, until the mixture boils and the sugar dissolves.
  3. Lower the flame and cook, stir often,until the mixture thickens. As the mixture gets very thick, stir continually, to prevent sticking. This will take about 15 minutes.
  4. When the mixture is so thich that you can see the bottom of the pan when you stir, remove from the stove.
  5. Sprinkle the 1/4 cup sugar on the pastry board. Turn the peanut mixture out onto the sugar and flatten it out with a spatula. Allow to cool so you can handle it.
  6. Roll it out with a rolling pin until the mixture is about 1/4 inch thick. With a knife, cut the mixture into small squares or with a cookie cutter.
  7. Remove the squares from the board with a metal spatula.
