Microwave Peanut Brittle
This is a fabulous recipe! After reading reviews, I made the recipe with the following modifications: (1) Use 1 tablespoon of butter instead of a teaspoon; (2) 2 teaspoons of baking soda, because I wanted it really light and crunchy; (3) I have a 900W microwave, so I adjusted to to 80% power while cooking to more closely match the 700W that another reviewer said this recipe used.
I suspect that people getting burned brittle need to adjust their power down and that should help, instead of just adjusting the time down.
Also, to finish off the recipe, I used the "pulling" method where I pull the brittle while it is cooling to make very thin brittle.
It was amazing, best brittle I've ever had!
