This definitely lives up to it's name with great flavor. I used Spanish peanuts. The sugar butter combination melted at around 10 - 12 minutes and the parchment paper made for an easy cleanup. I will be making this again and I'll add about 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
I changed the recipe slightly. I doubled it, but used 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 cup brown sugar, I also substituted pecans for peanuts. The directions didn't say how long our what temp to cook to, so I used my candy thermometer and cooked it to 302° for hard crack. Delicious!
This recipe turned out exactly as I had hoped. I did not add the salt since I used salted peanuts. And I would recommend that you warm the peanuts before adding them to the melted sugar or the sugar will cool too quickly and cause it to mound up instead of spread out in your pan. I made this as a birthday gift for my daughter-in-law and I know she will love it.
I reckon it was great ya gota be quick when it's time to put the nuts in and spread out. You could vary with chocolate chips spread on top when it is laid out, chilly or vanilla extract. Thankyou Love4 for the recipe.!!
I substituted the white sugar for brown and it was delicious. Just a pity my friends like it so much.
I loved it! I do not have corn syrup so it was perfect! I did not need to refrigerate it to make it brittle, it became brittle itself, I made it five times!
Try two other recipe with syrup and baking Soda. Both failures. Thus I was very happy to find this recipe. Didn't change a thing. Super easy, excellent.
First time making peanut brittle from any recipe. I was skeptical when I started melting the sugar and salt, nothing was happening. I thought I had missed an ingredient but after reading I saw that it takes about 10-12 mins. after putting in the peanuts and trying to pour it on to the parchment paper it stuck in a big pile. It was still hot, so I put another piece of parchment over it and rolled it with a rolling in. Worked like a charm. I had to taste the spoon I stirred with and it was soooo good. Can't wait for it to cool to crack it and give some to hubby. Yum I didn't change one thing, and would make it again. But double it next time..
Made my first ever peanut brittle and it was more than amazing! Such a great recipe and very easy to follow, although for people who haven't cooked it yet it would be nice if you could add that you would have to wait awhile for the sugar and butter to start melting as I wasn't sure if I was to put more butter in the mixture and it was quite solid. I read a couple of reviews and saw that I just had to wait! Works really well, tastes awesome! Tastes even better with Salted Caramel Ice Cream ;)
Made no changes and yes will make again. Thank you for this recipe...
Loved this recipe so quick and easy and the taste is spot on!
Delicious! Set up really fast so next time I think I will heat up the peanuts to give me a little more time to get it poured out.
Wow! Talk about easy! I've tried to make peanut brittle a bunch of times with little success. This worked. Just make sure that the sugar is completely melted--no grainy bits--before you add the peanuts. It hardened very fast, before I was able to spread it out. That did not mean it did not get eaten pretty darn fast. Try it; you'll be amazed.
Super easy to make. It was so delicous. I would make it again.
This is the best peanut brittle recipe! Family loved it! I didn’t change a thing.
I didn’t know it was this easy to make perfect peanut brittle. It truly was simple and quick. It turned out perfectly. I must say at end move quickly to get it spread in a pan because it hardens quickly. This can be made ahead or in a pinch.
Don't use coconut oil!
This was so easy and fast fool proof. I have made the long version and was not looking forward to making it for my husband who had a craving for peanut brittle that you Can't find in the store. Thank you so much for this recipe Merry Christmas!
Awesome not too sweet
I got sugar peanuts. they taste good but nothing close to brittle happened at all.
Delicious, I made it just as the recipe says. You have to move fast after you add the peanuts. I have made it without the butter , just caramelize the sugar and add the peanuts, it taste the same.
Quick, easy and delicious.
Thanks to the other reviewers for the tip that the sugar takes a while. Made as is and it got devoured
This is my first time making peanut brittle, and this recipe was so simple, and delicious! I doubled the recipe to make more, and I used one cup of golden sugar, and one cup of regular white granulated sugar. I also did not have parchment paper, so instead I greased a cookie sheet with some olive oil. Turned out amazing!
Ugggg... Ok I ended up with Sugar nuts, but sprinkled cinnamon & ginger over them. They were great! But I'm going to try again.
Make a double batch and was hard to get into the pan, only went half way across and isn't "brittle " just gooey even after being in the fridge all day. Very disappointed
Did not work at all!!
so easy loved it added a bit of cinnamon
This is my go-to peanut brittle recipe. I have made it at least 10 times. My family and I love it so much! It doesn't even last a day before it's gobbled up by everyone.
I loved it. My family loved it. I made it extra nutty so i used 2 cups nuts and I added a teaspoon vanilla extract
This was THE EASIEST recipe!! I used pinon nuts instead of peanuts and it turned out so DELICIOUS!!
This was my first time making brittle, and It turned out great! The only complaint I have was that 1 cup of sugar + 2 tablespoons of butter aren't enough for a batch using 1 cup of nuts, mixing in the nuts I realised that I wouldn't be able to pour it because it was too solid, so I ended up adding another tablespoon of butter and 1/2 cup of sugar to balance it out. Great recipe none the less though!
Very simple and easy to do instruction which makes any good recipe turn out GREAT. It's the kind of brittle that melts in your mouth
The taste isn’t the same as the slow method.
