Big Hunk

I made a Big Hunk. Debbie sent me the recipe she got it on the Internet. Its really good and taste the same as the one you buy at the store. It most likely isn't very healthy but I have a thing for it its like Chocolate
to some people.

1 large bottle planters dry roasted peanuts (lightly salted)
3 smaller jars Kraft Marshallow Cream
1 1/4 cups light corn syrup
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
6 Tbsp butter, melted
1/4 salt

Butter a large cookie sheet. Scatter peanuts equally on the cookie sheet. Place marshmallow cream in a large bowl, Set aside. In a large saucepan, combine corn syrup and sugar. Place over high heat. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon until mixture comes to a boil. Clip on candy thermometer. Cook to 280 degrees F or to soft crack stage. Remove from the heat and let stand 2 minutes undisturbed. Without scraping pour entire batch into Marshmallow cream and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth..Add butter,vanilla,and salt and stir until incorporated. Pour into prepared pan and spread evenly across peanuts. Allow to stand at room temperature until firm about 3 hours, Cut and wrap in wax paper.
