Our second batch turned out beautifully!! We set to work shelling the raw peanuts just after quiet time, then roasted them in the oven for about 5 minutes, and set them in the processor. This time I used the larger bottom bowl...which I believe was the problem with the first batch...not enough room to move and mix. We added nothing other than maybe a teaspoon of honey...no oil, no salt. And it was SO good.
They ate the entire bowl for snack with a spoon. Except Cohen. He does not eat WHITE peanut butter. Good to know.

And on to something completely different....

At the store yesterday Rylan asked if we could get marshmallows. And since we are in the process of erasing corn syrup from our diets I said no...but we could make some. I've always wanted to make marshmallows....it took a short search but I did find a recipe for corn syrup free homemade marshmallows. They were fun, and the boys watched the mixer the entire 12 minutes- watching it go from a clearish liquid to a big white fluffy mound. They take about 4 hours to set.....but fortunately for them.....

There is a mess in the bowl, paddle and spatula

Good thing it's bath time....
***ETA: Here is the link to the recipe for the corn-syrup free marshmallows....We've had them today after lunch and dinner....really yummy!


  1. Could you please post the recipe for marshmellows?

  2. I don't think I've ever heard of homemade marshmallows before...and I've heard of a lot of things. Good for you!

  3. Ooooo... thanks for the link. My kids would LOVE that! We like to make good cocoa too. If I do, I will post about it. It's always fun to combine forces and make super cool from scratch stuff. I wouldn't be able to do it without amazing ideas from my amazing friends. ;)


  4. Thanks for sharing the recipe for the marshmallows we are so going to try those especially since no corn syrup yea!!!
    Glad to hear the peanut butter worked out great.
