Hot Cinnamon Peanut Brittle

Hot Cinnamon Peanut Brittle

David

"This is a peanut brittle I concocted from several different recipes I have seen and used for peanut brittle over the years. It's a fun twist on the standard brittle and tastes like a mix between hot cinnamon candies and peanut brittle."

  • Ready In

  1. In a glass bowl, stir together the sugar, corn syrup, peanuts, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper until thoroughly blended. Microwave on high for 6 minutes. Slowly stir in the butter, and microwave an additional 30 seconds.
  2. Very carefully remove bowl from the microwave as the contents will be extremely hot. Gently stir in baking soda until mixture becomes light and foamy. Turn batter out onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet, scraping sides of bowl with a rubber spatula. Allow brittle to cool for 1 hour, then break into pieces.

Made this this evening. I did cut the amount of cayenne pepper in half, just in case. I really like it. It's a little different but makes an awesome addition to a candy tray. Thanks for the reci...

I love this recipe! It is super easy nd any level of cook can make this!

This wasn't a hit at our house. We both prefer regular peanut brittle. Thanks anyway.

It is a good variation of peanut brittle and came out beautifully. Not sure it really reminded me of red hots, but could definitely feel a little heat in there. It is good & I will make it again...

This never hardened and was more of a taffy consistency. The length of time that it spends in the microwave is dependent on the wattage of the microwave. Since you don't state what your wattag...
