So you love Pearson's Salted Nut Roll right? Me too, but probably because it's just a poor substitute for these salted nut rolls my grandmother used to make from her 'secret recipe'. However, if I know my grandmother 'secret' means 'off the back of the condensed milk can'.
This is the 'easy' version, which concentrates on taste and prep time as opposed to looking pretty.
Step 1: Hardware
You will need the following utensils:
- Microwave safe bowl (you can do this on the stove in pan, but the microwave is faster)
- Rubber spatula
- Waxed or butcher's paper
- Measuring cup
- 9x13 Pan
Step 2: Ingredients
Peanuts, Sugar, Corn Syrup, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Reduced Lactose Whey (milk derived), Salt, Coconut Oil, Natural And Artificial Vanilla Flavoring, Soy Lecithin, Soy Protein, Invertase, And TBHQ Added To Help Protect Flavor.
Ok, the first two sound fine, peanuts and sugar, but WTF is the rest of that stuff? Bad flavors, that's what. Granted there are some preservatives in the marshmallows and reese's chips, but markedly less of them; and they could be substituted with 'friendly' versions if you live near a hippie grocery store.
So the ingredients are:
- 10 oz Peanuts
- 2.5C Mini Marshmallows (You can substitute quartered large size, but that's a lot of work)
- 10oz Peanut butter chips
- Small can sweetened condensed milk
- 3 Tablespoons butter
