Peanut Brittle

This is a classic peanut brittle that is easy to make! All you need is to be quick to make this recipe, so have all the ingredients for this recipe measured and ready.
For anyone with a sweet tooth on your list, there’s nothing sweeter (literally) than the gift of home-made peanut brittle, you can always use almonds.

• 2 cups unsalted peanuts
• 2 cups sugar
• 1 cup golden corn syrup
• 1 cup water
• ¼ teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon butter
• 1 teaspoon baking soda

  Combine the sugar and water in a large saucepan over medium heat. After the sugar has completely dissolved (about 5 minutes), add the corn syrup and salt. Stir the mixture constantly until it begins to boil.

Add the peanuts and stir until the mixture starts bubbling. Remove saucepan from the stove. Then quickly mix in the butter, baking soda and peanut butter. Beat until the butter has melted. It hardens very quickly, so be ready to stir in the peanuts and baking soda immediately.

Pour the mixture onto a parchment-covered pan. Spread the mixture evenly with a spatula, be sure to spread the candy out as evenly as possible on the baking sheet before the sugar is too hard to handle.

Allow the mixture to cool for at least half an hour. Break it up into pieces and it’s ready to eat!
