Excellent. Made these at least a dozen times and always turn out great, even using salted peanuts. If you skip "beating until creamy" the candy will be grainy. I find it easier to pour hot candy mixture into cooking sprayed cookie sheet and break apart when cool. My step-father requests these all the time.

Tastes VERY good, no matter what type of peanuts you use, salted, raw, they all work! Will make again!
