2/3 c. warm water
1/2 c. white Karo syrup
3 egg whites (beaten)
1 tsp. vanilla
peanut butter

Directions:
Directions:
Mix sugar, water and syrup together, cook on medium heat. Cover the pan with a lid the first two or three minutes as to let the sugar dissolve. After it begins to boil, cook to 162 on a candy thermometer. While the sugar mixture is cooking, beat the egg whites until they stand in peaks. Pour the syrup SLOWLY into the beaten egg whites with the electric mixer running the whole time. Add the vanilla. Beat the candy mixture until it is stiff enough to hold its shape. Pour on a buttered marble (you can also butter wax paper on your counter top). I usually make two rounds, pat it out like pie crust. I sometimes butter a rolling pin and use that to flatten it. Let it cool just a bit, spread the peanut butter on the candy and roll it like a jelly roll. Let it stand for 20 minutes and slice. I use dental floss to slice it. Store in a tin or plastic container. Do not refrigerate.
