How To Make famous soft peanut brittle-a davenport hotel clone

  • 1
    In a double boiler over hot water, place peanut butter to heat while preparing syrup. In a large saucepan combine sugar, corn syrup and 1/4 cup of water.
  • 2
    Cook over high heat to 275 degrees on a candy thermometer. Lower heat to medium, add butter, stirring until melted.
  • 3
    Add peanuts, cook stirring for about 5 minutes until candy starts turning brown and reaches 300 degrees on the thermometer. Remove from heat, and stir in baking soda that has been dissolved in a teaspoon of water.
  • 4
    Add vanilla. 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.
