3 dozen squares
2 1/2 c sugar
1 c milk
1/2 c butter
1/2 c peanut butter
1/3 c cocoa
1 Tbs corn syrup
1 c chopped peanuts (unsalted)
2 tsp vanilla
Combine sugar, cocoa, milk, and corn syrup in a heavy gauge pot and cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Add 2 Tbs butter and stir until melted. Cover and boil for 3 minutes. Remove and continue to cook until mixture reaches 235F (soft ball stage), brushing sides of pot to make sure no crystals form. Remove from heat and add remaining butter, nuts, peanut butter, and vanilla, but do not stir. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Beat until well mixed and pour into buttered 9x10 inch square pan. Chill thoroughly and cut into 1/2-inch squares.
