Mom's Best Peanut Brittle
February 01, 2003

Fabulous! This stuff tastes just wonderful, and was very easy to make with very little cleanup afterwards. Since I live in a country where corn syrup is not available, I had to substitute light molasses for the corn syrup, which worked just fine. A couple of suggestions--even though the amount of liquid is originally not very large, be sure you use a large pot since the extremely hot, sticky mixture foams up to many time its original size when the butter and baking soda are added. Also, don't dump out the mixture onto the cookie sheet in just one place and expect you'll be able to spread the peanuts around evenly afterwards--you'll crush all the bubbles. A better tactic would be to pour the mixture out onto the cookie sheet in a circular pattern so the peanuts are evenly distributed to begin with, then tilt the pan to get the liquid spread evenly.
