Peanut Brittlemedium prep time 5 mins | cook time 70 mins servings 0
1 cup sugar
1 cup La Fe Brown Sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1 cup butter, cut into chunks
2 cups raw Spanish peanuts
1 teaspoon baking soda
Start by buttering 2 baking sheets and then set them aside.
Combine the sugar, corn syrup and water in a 3-quart heavy saucepan. After this, cook over medium heat, making sure to stir occasionally. This process should take roughly 8-12 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and the mixture comes to a full boil.
Once you have completed this process, add in the butter and then continue cooking, making sure to stir occasionally for roughly 15-25 minutes.
After you have finished this process, stir in the peanuts. Continue to cook the mixture, stirring constantly for about 10-12 minutes. Take a small amount of the mixture and drop it into ice cold water. If the drop forms a hard brittle strand, you are ready to remove the mixture from the heat. Once removed from heat, stir in baking soda.
Now, pour the mixture immediately onto the prepared sheets, making sure to spread the mixture evenly to achieve about ¼-inch thickness. Cool completely.
Finally break the brittle into pieces and then store it in tight fitting container.
