These homemade candies are a true labor of love a soft center wrapped in chewy caramel and salty peanuts!

A few quick tips for success:

Invest in a Silpat silicone baking mat for kneading the marshmallow mixture. It will be like kneading dough, you want it nice and smooth.

Divide the “dough” ball into 6 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 7-8 inch log (about 1-inch thick around). Wrap each log in parchment paper and freeze for 2 hours, until firm. You can even freeze overnight if you’d like.

When ready to enjoy, slice the logs into 1-inch pieces and enjoy!
