My favorite roomie ever who shares my love of baking brought this easy peanut brittle recipe. Quick and sugary- Just what I like!
- 1/2 cup peanuts
- 1 tablespoon corn syrup
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
Cut the butter into chunks so it melts evenly. Combine sugar, corn syrup, and butter in a large saucepan (larger than you think is necessary- it bubbles up.)
Heat over high heat, stirring constantly. It will bubble a lot and stuff, Keeeeeep stirring!
Add the peanuts when it gets to be a light brown color. Eventually it will turn the color of coffee with 2 creams. Not one cream, not 3 creams, 2 creams. Exactly. You have to be quick about it, and this apparently takes practice which I will experiment with eventually.
Then pour into a pan lined with parchment paper. Let cool and break into pieces! Yum!
