I had never made peanut brittle before, but I know my way around a kitchen, so that was not an obstacle for me. I don't have a candy thermometer, so the hard ball test is what worked for me. (Drop a spoonful of syrup into cold water, and it will turn hard and solid.) I did add the butter and vanilla, but I think I will omit the vanilla next time. I did end up burning it a little, but not so bad that it tastes awful. I REALLY liked the texture of this brittle, it was fluffy, not dense and it made a tactile treat for my mouth!! I will be making this again!! (Only next time, I will not burn it.)
