Homemade Candy: Texas Peanut Patties

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[Editor's Note: These peanut patties are a shocking color, but apparently the "red dye is optional," according to Christina of Dessert for Two. Regardless of their hue, they sound like a really delicious treat, and I'm all for skipping processed candy and just making one's own at home. It can't help but taste better, after all! --Genie]

Texas Peanut Patties
