I usually make brittle with cashews and for a change and less money I decided to make some with dry roasted peanuts..I even tried making brittle with Puffed Wheat Cereal and was happy with the result....Since my recipe book will be called SOUP TO NUTS I have to make several candy recipes and now have a stsrter.

How to Make Peppery Peanut Brittle

Step-by-Step

  • 1This peanut can be made in the microwave. I find it quicker and easier but can also be made the usual way you make it if you have made brittle before.
  • 2Using 15x10x1 inch metal cookie sheet,,butter the sheet and also butter a spatula. you can also use buttery cooking spray...Toss the peanuts, hot pepper sauce and allspice until well coated.
  • 3In a 2 quart microwave safe glass bowl combine sugar and corn syrup, microwave, uncovered, on high cook for 4 minutes, stir, add peanut mixture, stir until blended...heat on high for another 4 minutes longer and mix turns light amber color. check with thermomete and if it reached th hard cracked stage,stir in butter micro 45 seconds longer, quickly stir in the baking soda and vanilla mixter should foam.. BE CAREFUL AS MIX WILL BE VERY HOT AND CAN A SERIOUS BURN..I use oven mitts to remove from micro.
  • 4Pour mixture onto pan and spread out with buttered spatula..spread as thin as possible,,you will have to work quickly..chill and break into pieces when chilled and set...My micro is an 850 watt micro. If you happen to get any hot mix on arm or hand immediately place an ice cube on area to avoid blistering Happy crunching.
