    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    Easy and yummy. I am REQUIRED to make this at Christmas time now!

    List of Ingredients

    2 c. shelled raw peanuts
    2 c. sugar
    1 c. light corn syrup
    1/3 c. water
    2 T. butter
    1/4 t. salt
    1 t. baking soda
    1 t. vanilla


    Spread nuts in a 15x10 pan, bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, stirring once - set aside.

    Combine next five ingredients in a dutch oven, cook over medium heat stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally until it reaches hard crack stage (300 degrees). Remove from heat. Stir in nuts, soda and vanilla. Working rapidly, spread mixture in a 15x10x1 jelly roll pan. Let cool. Break into pieces.

    VARIATION: To make chocolate brittle, spread 6 oz. chocolate on the brittle while still hot and then spread when the chocolate melts.
