One of my husband’s favorites is Peanut Brittle. We were at the Farmer’s Market the other day and purchased some for like $5-$6 for a small bag and it got me thinking I could probably make that! So low and behold, I did! Here’s a simple, easy, and AMAZING Homemade Peanut Brittle Recipe! It’s probably the best brittle I’ve ever had and my stomach kinda hurts right now from eating it (and yet as I type I’m still eating it…dumb). Let’s dig into this deliciously easy peanut brittle recipe…
How to Make Homemade Peanut Brittle
Here’s what you need for this recipe:
- corn syrup
- baking soda
- Candy Thermometer
Start by greasing a large cookie sheet and getting it prepared for later. Then in a large saucepan bring your sugar, corn syrup, and water to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
Next, stir in the peanuts and set your candy thermometer in place and continue cooking. Stir frequently and once the temperature hits 300 F remove from heat and immediately stir in butter and baking soda.
Pour the mixture onto a cookie sheet and spread it across the sheet. Finally, let cool and then lift mixture and snap into pieces to serve!
