Peanut Brittle is a classic must have treat at our house during Christmastime. It’s actually fairly quick and simple to make.
Peanut Brittle Ingredients:
- 2 cup sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 2 cup dry-roasted or raw peanuts
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
Prepare 2 cookies sheet lined with foil and then coated with butter.
In sauce pan add sugar and corn syrup, bring to boil and reduce heat to medium until it reaches 275 degrees on a candy thermometer. Make sure you stir constantly.
Your next step is to stir in peanuts, and continue to cook on stovetop at medium heat until it once again reaches 275. This step should take about 3 minutes.
Remove from heat immediately, add baking soda and stir. Add to prepared baking sheets.
Using a fork pull and stretch out the candy. Let cool.
When the Peanut Brittle is completely cooled, break into pieces. Enjoy!
