Quick and easy peanut brittle (microwave)

Gail Herbest


I'll bet I made this 30 times last year during the Holidays, It is the best Peanut Brittle I have ever tasted!! and so easy, great to give as a kitchen gift. I get all of my ingredients together before I start so that it doesn't have a chance to cool before I mix in the baking soda.
