Peanut Butter Candy

Candy is a year round easy thing to make. It normally doesn't require your oven to be turned on in the heat of summer and in winter it just warms your heart. Wait...it does that any time of year. I love making candy and I love trying out new candy recipes. If you like the texture and taste of the inside of a Butterfinger Bar then you will positively like this candy. I found this recipe on Pinterest and it's super yummy! I think the next time I make it, I will try to dip the candy in dark or milk chocolate to see how that turns out.
The original recipe can be found here:http://www.cookistry.com/2011/01/peanut-butter-shale-candy.html
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda

Grease a baking sheet with butter. In a medium sized pot, combine the water, sugar and corn syrup and bring to a boil. Stir occasionally until the sugar melts. Use a candy thermometer to bring the mixture to 305°, stirring frequently.Add the peanut butter, vanilla, and baking soda, and stir quickly to combine. Pour immediately onto your greased pan, and do your best to spread it out evenly. Allow the candy to cool completely, then break it into pieces.
