  • 2 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter


  1. Mix sugar, corn syrup, and water together in a sauce pan; bring to a boil.
  2. Heat to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a rigid ball (hard ball stage) which is about 15 minutes.
  3. Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form peaks.
  4. Slowly pour sugar mixture over egg whites while beating with an electric mixer. Beat until candy clings to a spoon and loses some of its shine.
  5. Spread candy mixture onto a sheet of waxed paper; sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
  6. Generously spread peanut butter over candy mixture.
  7. Roll candy into one large roll; cut into 2 rolls.
  8. Slice each roll into desired pieces.
