I have made peanut brittle the old fashioned way for years at Christmas as part of my Christmas treats and its aleays been time consuming- you have to watch it or it can scortch in a flash. Well no more!! This recipe is so easy! I made 4 batches this morning and already have them bagged! I did not change the ingredients and used dry roasted store brand peanuts. My hints: if you have one use a Silicone baking mats on your cookie sheet (I use the half-sheet pans and every baker should have at least two silicone mats !!!), 4 cup pyrex measuring cup sprayed with Pam and then wiped out with a paper towel(the handle on the measuring cup helps so much!!), silcone spatula sprayed with Pam and wiped off (washed and re-sprayed after each stirring) and very hot soapy water to clean up. I have a 1000 watt microwave and it came out perfect with the specified times. You have to wotk fast because it sets up so quickly!! Each batch made just about a pound of brittle.
