Ingredients

    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

Directions

  • STEP ONE
    Start by buttering 2 baking sheets and then set them aside.

  • STEP TWO
    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.

  • STEP THREE
    Once you have completed this process, add in the butter and then continue cooking, making sure to stir occasionally for roughly 15-25 minutes.

  • STEP FOUR
    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.

  • STEP FIVE
    Now, pour the mixture immediately onto the prepared sheets, making sure to spread the mixture evenly to achieve about ¼-inch thickness. Cool completely.

  • STEP SIX
    Finally break the brittle into pieces and then store it in tight fitting container.
