How to Make Easy Old Timey Peanut Brittle
- Combine all ingredients EXCEPT the baking soda in a heavy skillet & cook until the peanuts start to pop & mixture begins to brown. Stir often so all the peanuts cook evenly. On my stove it will cook about 20 minutes on 6 1/2 from the time I turn it on.
- The peanuts pop open about the time the syrup turns a carmel color. Then take off the heat & add the baking soda. Stir quickly & mix well. Pour & spread out evenly on a greased cookie sheet.
- When cool break up into pieces as desired. Eat & enjoy!!
