Peanut Brittle
10 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Total: 30 minutes
Servings: All to yourself

1-3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
5 tablespoons salted butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1-1/4 cup peanuts – roasted/salted
1/3 cup water
Pinch of salt

Be sure all ingredients are first measured out beforehand. Next, grease (or use parchment paper) a 9 x 13-rimmed baking sheet and set aside.

Using a 2-quart saucepan combine the sugar, corn syrup, salt, and water over medium heat.

Be sure the sugar fully dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil.

Once the mixture is boiling add peanuts and use a candy thermometer to get the temperature of mixture to 300 degrees. When at 300 – 310 degrees remove the mixture from heat and immediately stir in butter and baking soda until you have a smooth texture.

Now pour onto a greased (or use parchment paper) baking sheet. Spread the mixture out into a thin layer. Allow cooling completely. Once cooled you can break the full sheet into smaller bite-sized chunks. Put broken pieces into an airtight container.

Over the coming days, enjoy as you treat yourself!
