I adore peanut brittle. And this recipe from Kraft makes it so easy to make! It’s great without the added chocolate, too!

We give treats as gifts every year and this always makes it’s way into those bags and baskets! The girls like to help with the dipping.

Sweet Peanut Brittle

Prep Time: 5 min
Total Time: 50 min
Makes: About 1-1/2 lb.

What You Need

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 Tbsp. butter
2 cups cocktail peanuts
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
4 squares BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Make It

SPRAY large baking sheet with cooking spray. Microwave sugar and corn syrup in large glass microwaveable bowl on HIGH 5 min. Stir in butter and peanuts. Microwave 3 to 4 min. or until pale golden brown. Stir in baking soda and vanilla. (Mixture will foam.) Spread onto prepared baking sheet. Cool completely. Break into pieces.

Note: make sure you cook this long enough. If you don’t you will lose a cookie sheet (because it won’t come off!) And don’t line the cookie sheet with anything… Or you’ll lose a batch of peanut brittle! Yes, I’ve done both!

MICROWAVE chocolate in 1-cup glass measuring cup on HIGH 1 to 2 min. or until chocolate is melted when stirred. Add peanut butter; stir until melted. Dip half of each candy piece in chocolate mixture; scrape bottom against edge of cup to remove excess chocolate. Place on sheet of foil or waxed paper. Refrigerate 20 min. or until chocolate is firm.

To add some bite to your brittle add 1t hot pepper sauce when you add vanilla.
