My fiance loves peanut brittle and having never made it before, I wanted to find the most fool-proof way to do it. Well....I used another microwave brittle recipe that I found on a cooking blog which turned out not so good - not because it was a bad recipe, the cooking times were off for MY microwave. Then I found this one, read a lot of the reviews and gave it a try. I ended up using some tips from other reviewers, as I am not sure of my microwave's wattage (it was made in 2002) so I put the sugar and corn syrup in first for 6 1/2 minutes, took it out and stirred in the nuts, butter, and vanilla and put it back in for another 3 minutes. I then took it out and quickly added the baking soda, stirred, and poured it out onto a warmed cookie sheet covered in parchment paper (another reviewer tip). At 15 minutes the brittle broke up really well, had a beautiful amber color, and tasted delicious. I even took my previous brittle that was grainy and not cooked enough and melted it down again for 4 minutes in the microwave and recooked it. It now is amber colored as well, and I am waiting to see if it will set up and I can actually save it! Thanks for this easy recipe for candy beginners like me. It looks wonderful and tastes fantastic!
