FAMOUS SOFT PEANUT BRITTLE-A DAVENPORT HOTEL CLONE
Nancy J. Patrykus @Finnjin
This candy is world famous.
I have made this recipe many times, for family and friends. Mainly at Christmas time. It is always received with joy and blessings.
Maybe you will make it your family tradition...?? and maybe someday visit this beautiful hotel.
In a large saucepan combine sugar,
corn syrup and 1/4 cup of the water.
on a candy thermometer.
Lower heat to medium, add butter,
stirring until melted.
Remove from heat, stir in baking soda that has been dissolved in a teaspoon of water.
Working quickly, fold in the warmed
peanut butter, while stirring gently.
At once, pour candy mixture onto a well greased marble slab or a cookie sheet.
Very quickly...spread as thin as possible!
The secret of the candy is quick cooling.
When cold ...break into serving size pieces.
