The school semester is over until mid June, so my goal is to pile on the recipes while I can!! First up....
I've always been a fan since I was a wee little girl. This was my first time making homemade peanut brittle though. Mine was a tad thick, next time I think I'll use a shallower/wider baking sheet so it doesn't turn out so thick.
Nonetheless, 'twas still tasty. And it's not even difficult, friends! Whodathunk making peanut brittle could be so easy peasy??
Now go make it!
slightly adapted from Mother Thyme
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 2 cups honey roasted peanuts
In a large saucepan, stir sugar and corn syrup over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Stir in peanuts. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, stirring frequently to avoid burning, until candy thermometer reaches 295 degrees and the mixture is a golden color, about 10-15 minutes.
Remove from heat. Quickly pour mixture onto prepared baking sheet and spread evenly. Set aside to allow to cool and harden. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.
