Microwave Peanut Brittle

Created by jclawson, Thursday, 02 December 2010


Feel like a kid again when you make this homemade candy. Use a big bowl to avoid a boil-over mess.


At a glance
2 cups sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
2 cups dry-roasted, unsalted peanuts
1 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons baking soda


Lightly grease a large jelly roll pan or a cookie sheet with sides. In a 3-quart microwavable bowl, mix the sugar and corn syrup and microwave on high for 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in the peanuts and microwave for another 7 to 10 minutes, or until the mixture turns golden. Stir in the butter and vanilla, microwave for another 90 seconds, and stir in the baking soda until the mixture is foamy. Then, working quickly, pour the mixture into the pan and allow it to cool until it’s brittle. Turn the pan over onto a piece of waxed paper and knock out the candy. Break it into pieces and store in a tightly covered container.
