Peanut Brittle is a classic, don’t you think? It makes a great gift for friends and family too. I made some for my fam and one of my neighbors. They loved it. I love it. But I can’t eat as much as I use to. Couple reasons. My teeth can’t handle it like they use to and it makes me fat now. 🙂
This is a sticky recipe to make. Kinda messy, but oh so worth it! And guess how easy it is. You microwave the syrup, mix in the other ingredients, pour it on a cookie sheet (very carefully) and let it set. Then you get to take out some anger by beating it into pieces.
Just imagine the thing/person you’re the most upset with and break away. Be careful though, you don’t want to end up with nothing but crumbs. I let my grandsons beat one of my batches and we had some really small pieces after that. Boys like to demolish stuff…did you know?
With this recipe, I used honey roasted peanuts, but you could use regular roasted peanuts, or just regular peanuts. Maybe you want to change it up a bit. Add some different nuts in there. Like macadamia nuts, or almonds. Be adventurous! Since this was a gift, I took the safe route and didn’t put my favorite peanut in there, macadamia nuts. When I make a batch for me, I’ll do that.
If you make peanut brittle, what nut will you use?
