Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle
God Bless you for this recipe! I started making brittle last year around the holidays with a Martha Stewart recipe. It was great when it turned out, but that was only about 50% of the time. Still no clue what the magic catalyst was but thankfully will not have to worry about it anymore. Just finished making my first batch and although it's not done setting it looks perfect. I found this recipe in desperation after my big mouth volunteered to make brittle to sell at my daughter's school's fall fundraiser. You have seriously saved my sanity! My few tips - I have a 1000 W microwave and I did 6 minutes then 2 minutes. I also used a large Pyrex measuring bowl for pouring ease. I sprayed Pam on wooden spoons and lined a baking sheet with aluminum fool, sprayed it with Pam and kept it warm in the oven at 200 degrees until it was time to pour the brittle. Pull the aluminum foil off the baking sheet after about 5 minutes. The heat from the baking sheet will slow down the hardening process. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
