Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2014
This was amazingly simple and easy, and makes the BEST brittle. I read a bunch of the reviews and followed several tips (all consolidated here, so you have all the info in one place!) -Heat your buttered cookie sheet. It helps the mixture spread out, especially if you pour it in a circle or a zigzag, and not all in one place -add 1 tsp of vanilla to your butter/baking powder mixture (yes, I put them together. I melted the butter too.) -use a candy thermometer, and be sure that the sugar mix goes over 300 for a few minutes before adding the butter/baking powder/vanilla -add the peanuts after the thermometer reaches 250. It keeps them from burning. I finished mine with a sprinkle of flaked sea salt on top, as I used unsalted peanuts that were nice and dry. Those little bursts of salt really pull it all together!
