Brittle The Way It Should Be


Clarice Brown works with me and I think she is a great cook. She has brought in some wonderful recipes to work for some office "pot lucks" and "pie contests." She shared this easy recipe for Peanut Brittle with me today. I was looking for a good recipe that was easy-to-do and this brittle is just what I needed to finished my holiday goodie baking...

Easy Peanut Brittle

1 C. Sugar
½ C. corn syrup
1 C. Peanuts
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 greased cookie sheet

In a microwave safe bowl, add sugar and corn syrup, stir. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Add peanuts, stir and microwave on high for 3 minutes. Add butter and vanilla, stir and microwave on high for 1 minute. Add baking soda, stir and pour immediately on greased cookie sheet. Let cool and break into pieces. Store in an air tight container.

i've always wondered do you use raw peanuts with the skins or do you use unsalted nuts from the can?

I use the unsalted nuts from a can myself. But I don't see why you couldn't use raw peanuts either.

Try it and let me know how it works for you...
