Salted Nut Roller Candies

  • Yield 24 pieces

"I make this candy for Christmas and Easter."

Ingredients

1/4 cup evaporated milk
30 caramels
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 1/2 to 2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
1 (16-ounce) jar salted peanuts
1 (16-ounce) jar unsalted peanuts

Instructions

  1.  Combine the milk, caramels, and butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook until the caramels and butter are melted, stirring frequently. Blend in the confectioners’ sugar. Remove from the heat.
  2. Spread the salted and unsalted peanuts on a large sheet of wax paper. Using a tablespoon and working quickly, drop caramel mixture over the peanuts. Cover the mixture with the peanuts and shape into rolls, about 3 inches by 1 inch. The rolls will be sticky.
  3. Let stand 30 minutes before wrapping the rollers individually with wax paper or colorful plastic wrap.
