........... a bit of MAGIC with you........ MAGIC because its so darn easy to make and tastes sooo darn good......And you don't even have to heat up your kitchen this summer to make it.........
Peanut Brittle!!! Have you ever tried to make your own?? I don't share many recipes on here cause lets face it i. just. don't. like. to. cook. Its a necessity but its not something i enjoy. I don't like having to hang out over the stove........ So most of my 'go to' recipes center around the crock pot or the oven. In this case... the microwave oven. MicroWave Peanut Brittle. Now before you shake your head and walk away let me tell you this Brittle passes the Hubby test and he is a Peanut Brittle Connoisseur! This recipe is a well guarded secret of mine that probably everybody knows.. LOL! But i'm gonna share my version that has never let me down...
MicroWave Peanut Brittle
1 cup of raw peanuts
1/2 cup white corn syrup
1/8 tsp salt
1tsp baking soda
Now.......... in a microwave safe dish that can handle high temps ( in other words not plastic) stir together peanuts, sugar, syrup, salt. Microwave 3 1/2 - 4 minutes on high. Stir well. Microwave another 3 1/2 - 4 minutes. Add butter , vanilla , Stir to blend. Microwave another 2 minutes. Add baking soda. Stir gently until foamy. Working quickly pour onto aluminum foil covered baking sheet. Let Cool. Break into pieces.
Now Microwaves vary so you may have to fiddle with the timing a little bit. Pretty much you just want to watch it so it doesn't get too dark.....I hope you'll give it a try............ You can thank me later.. :) Hugs! deb
