PEANUT CANDY

INGREDIENTS:
PEANUT BUTTER HONEY DRY MON-FAT MILK
INSTRUCTIONS:
PEANUT CANDY Our two sons are in their 30s now. They were raised as vegetarians and one of their favorite dishes when they were in their pre-school days was a mixture of peanut butter, honey and dry milk. It was easy to make, didn�t require any cooking, they liked it because it tasted sweet and we thought it gave them protein, calcium, etc. Combine peanut butter and honey, about equal amounts, till it is semisolid (just experiment till you get it right). Then mix in dry powdered milk to get the right end consistency. Some cheap brands just clump up. The brand we found that worked best was Sanalac. Then knead by hand at the end and form into long cords and cut into appropriate size pieces. Dump in a bowl & serve. You can adjust the consistency by increasing or decreasing the amount of each ingredient.
