Fa La La La Licious


I made TWO batches of this yesterday. If you haven't tried this recipe version, do! You'll go NUTS over it!


Microwave Peanut Brittle

1 1/2 cups dry roasted peanuts
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 pinch salt
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda

Grease a baking sheet or cover with parchment paper. In a glass bowl, combine peanuts, sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Cook in microwave for 6 to 7 minutes. Mixture should be bubbly and peanuts browned. Stir in butter and vanilla; cook 2 to 3 minutes longer.

Quickly stir in baking soda--just until mixture is foamy. Pour immediately onto greased or covered baking sheet. Let cool about 15 minutes or until set. Break into pieces, and store in airtight container.

So EASY and So GOOD!!

  1. That looks so good. I haven't had any fresh good brittle in awhile. It sounds easy, but I'm afraid I'll mess it up!

  7. Oh my gosh, peanut brittle reminds me of my mom and dad when I was growing up. They always had it in the car for a snack when we would take long road trips!
