Candy Recipe: Peanut Butter Logs

Categories: Candy,Candy Recipes

Every now and then, we’re going to post candy recipes here on Candy Addict and here is our first one: Peanut Butter Logs. This recipe comes straight from my mom. She used to make this for us when I was a kid and it is WONDERFUL. Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of these because I haven’t made it in a long time and never thought to take pictures. They look really great – like peanut butter pinwheels.


  • a box of powdered sugar (set aside a quarter cup)
  • a half teaspoon of salt, optional
  • a stick of butter softened to room temperature
  • a jar of peanut butter (you won’t need it all)


  1. melt butter
  2. add butter to the sugar until the mixture is the right texture to be firm enough to roll out. I usually break the ball in two and make two balls because it is too long to handle if you don’t.
  3. Roll the mixture out on wax paper with some powder sugar sprinkled on it to keep it from sticking. Try to make a large rectangular shape, it should be comparable to 6 x 12.
  4. Spread a layer of peanut butter onto the rolled out mixture – you will not use the whole jar
  5. Roll it up tightly using wax paper to complete the rolling process.
  6. Lift using the wax paper and freeze immediately.
  7. Slice into about 1/4 inch thick slices after about 30 minutes and then refrigerate.
  8. Eat and enjoy!

    I have fond memories of making this candy with my mom when I was a kid. We always used milk instead of the butter though. It still came out great. You have to have Jif peanut butter for it to be really good though. I hate it when people try to sneak Peter Pan, Skippy, or something generic in there.

    My mother-in-law made something similar, but she made divinity in place of the powdered sugar/butter mixture. This sounds much easier. I’m going to make some for my husband who has been wishing for his mom’s peanut butter candy.

    I am so excited!!! I have been looking for this recipe for years. My Great aunt had some in a tin back around Christmas 1975. I loved them so much I would sneak some when no one was looking. I asked her for the recipe when my daughters were young. She did not know what I was talking about. Since then I have been on a mission to find this candy. I can not wait to make them and share them with my Grandkids.
    Thank You For Sharing This Recipe :)
