raw Spanish peanuts
light corn syrup
This was so good and so easy to make. I made a few changes to mine though. I used coctail peanuts (2 cups instead of 1) and added 1 tbs of butter to the mixture when I added the peanuts. When I added the baking soda, I also added 1 tsp of vanilla. After it was cooled I covered the top (before breaking it) with a baking chocolate/peanut butter mixture.
Good taste but time consuming and messy for amateur candy cooks.
Very good brittle. I used plantars dry roasted lightly salted peanuts and it turned out fine. I will pour it onto lightly greased foil next time as the foil stuck to the back of some pieces. I didn't use a thermometer but instead followed the directions for the (dripping off the spoon and leaving hairs behind) It worked great.
I keep trying different peanut brittle recipes and I am always disappointed. But this is the recipe I have been searching for. It's the best peanut brittle I have ever had. My husband just ate the whole batch.
I burned the first time? Waited too long. It kept cooking a little longer even after removing from the heat. Second time worked very well. It's light in a texture. I will add more nuts in next time...maybe half a cup or more. I also added 1 tsp salt to it too. Definitely make this again.
OMG!!!! I have never made Peanut Brittle before and will not look for a different recipe. The only thing I did different is add vanilla. I just feel every desert needs vanilla extract. This was simple and delicous. Gone as fast as I could break it up and I didn't even know they liked peanut brittle.
this is the best peanut brittle recipe out there for peanut brittle, i have tried several others and thank goodness i found this one, the others out there are no where as good as this one... thanks so much for this i love it
This was so easy to make. My mother-in-law took some to work with her and everyone that tried it wanted the recipe. They said it reminded them of when they were younger.
