Chocolate peanuts


Everybody loves chocolate. And recent news articles claim that chocolate is more effective for coughs than cough syrup? We don’t know about that, but chocolate sure tastes good! Enjoy our chocolate covered peanuts and try our famous plump Virginia peanuts in the delicious chocolate treats recipes below.

1 cup cream
1 cup chopped peanuts
2 cups white granulated sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cake unsweetened chocolate
Put in the sugar and cream, and when this becomes hot, put in the chocolate, broken up into fine pieces; stir vigorously and constantly, put in the butter when it begins to boil; stir until it creams when beaten on a saucer; remove and beat until quite cool, and pour into buttered tins; add the nuts before stirring.

2 cups granulated sugar

1/2 pound of sweet chocolate
1/2 cup of peanut meal or coarsely ground meats, as desired.

Grate the chocolate; add the boiling water; stir until dissolved. Place the kettle over the fire and cook for several minutes; add the peanuts, and boil until the candy will snap when pulled apart; remove from the fire, and pour out to cool; pull and cut as desired.ABOUT VIRGINIA PEANUT COMPANY
