"I had a neighbor who was raised in Texas. I made these for him, and he said that they were exactly as he remembered them.

Peanuts are a very large crop in Texas. Goodart makes the original peanut patty which is sold in cafes and gas stations throughout Texas".


3 C. sugar
3 C. raw peanuts
1 C. light corn syrup
1/2 C. water
1/2 C. unsalted butter
1 T. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
Few drops red food coloring

  • Lay a large piece of wax paper on a dishtowel on a counter. In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, peanuts, corn syrup and water.
  • Cook the mixture to soft ball stage (240°F), stirring constantly over medium heat. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the remaining ingredients, adding enough food coloring to get a very bright red shade. Stir the mixture frequently for approximately 20 minutes, or until it cools to about 125°F. The mixture will become very thick and creamy opaque, and the peanuts will be suspended.
  • Immediately spoon the mixture into large patties on the sheet of wax paper. Let the patties sit for at least 1 hour before eating them. Their texture should be chewy like nougat. Wrap them in plastic wrap for storage. They will keep for about one week.
