Easy Nut Brittle #HolidayTreats

A few weeks ago, I went to a baking exchange and someone made Peanut Brittle. It didn't last long and I may have eaten it all before my family even knew of its existence. *Whistling* I've never tried making Peanut Brittle before, so I went searching for a recipe that was EASY and tasty.  This recipe turns out every single time (I've been whipping up batches for Teachers gifts!) and I simply throw in whichever nuts I have on hand. 

Adapted from AllRecipes.com -  

Microwave Nut Brittle

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup salted peanuts (or other nut)
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda

  • Butter a cookie sheet. (I used parchment paper.)
  • Combine sugar & corn syrup in a glass dish.  Microwave on High for 4 minutes.
  • Stir in nuts and microwave on High for 3 1/2 minutes.
  • Stir in butter & vanilla and microwave on High for 1 1/2 minutes.
  • Stir in baking soda until the mixture is light and foamy. 
  • Pour onto a cookie sheet and spread thin. (Be quick- it cools fast!)
  • Cool completely and break into pieces and serve! 


I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as we do!
