Mom's Best Peanut Brittle
This is the best peanut brittle I've ever had! I live in Virginia, so I've had tons of brittles, but this one was perfect on every note--not too buttery, not too sweet, not overly airy or crumbly, and since I did a rounded 1/4tsp, the saltiness was perfect for me too!
I don't have a candy thermometer, so I used the cold water test. However, I must say that you can really just go by color. Once it gets to the color that we all know brittle to have, go another minute and you're done.
I forgot about the fork tip and I spread with a rubber spatula, which was less than ideal, because I ended up with 2 small holes. Not bad, but not perfect on my part. I spread some Godiva semi sweet baking chocolate and a touch of dark chocolate on half and did a light sprinkling of table salt on top. Yum!!!
I think that this is actually better in a 9x12 pan, rather than the suggested one.
