So easy! I didn't have a big enough measuring cup so I just used a glass , microwaveable dish. I didn't cook mine the entire 3.5 minutes on the second round because the pecans were trying to scorch. I did the rest exactly as it said and it turned out perfectly! Doesn't make a huge amount so you may want to double the recipe if you want a lot. Sooooo good! This recipe is a keeper for sure!
This recipe has all the right ingredients and was easy to make but if you follow the directions as given your brittle will burn. Perhaps this was meant to be used with a low wattage microwave, My microwave is 1200 watts .
Just wanted everyone to know that I'm the one who posted this recipe. I make this all the time and have made it on several different microwaves that have varied in wattage. I'm sorry that yours have burned and maybe just readjust the last two minutes for 1 minute. I've truly never had a problem with the times. Again I'm sorry. Also, I make mine is glass measuring cups. I have a variety of sizes and use the 4 cup measuring cup to cook it in the microwave.
I just made this recipe, and the first batch literally set my smoke alarm off--a burned up mess! [My microwave is a Samsung 1.65kW, which I assume is 1650 watts.] I tried it a second time, and cooked the first time for 3 minutes, the 2nd time [after stirring] for 2 minutes, and the 3 time [after butter] 1 minute, and it turned out great. I LOVE not having to cook brittle on the stove for hours at a time--thanks for the wonderful recipe!
Ingredients are spot on. Changed the cooking time to reflect larger microwave. I have a 1200 watt 1.2 cu ft Panasonic inverter microwave. Cooked the sugar and syrup 3 minutes on high. Added pecans and cooked another 3 minutes on high. Added butter, vanilla extract, and baking soda and stirred vigorously until well combined. Did not cook any more, poured into prepared baking sheet and let cool. Turned out perfect.
Edit: Made again and cut the cooking time after adding the pecans to 2:30 instead of 3:00 minutes. It was good before but had a bit of "toasty" taste. It set up fine and tasted better.
BEWARE. This is addictive. Wonderful and easy to make.
Definitely do not cook the last two minutes, mine burned as well.
it came out bubbly and chewy. Im so mad it didn't come out like the picture this is my second try btw. :(
