This recipe is made in the microwave in 10 minutes, but I chose to use the all time SOUTHERN FAVORITE Black Walnuts because I didn't have enough Peanuts. You may use other nuts of choice. I also used Vanilla Bean Paste instead of Vanilla Extract. This brittle will be darker in color because of the Black Walnuts, but the taste is amazing. You can also add a dash of salt to enhance the flavor of the brittle if you wish, but I tend not to add salt when using salted peanuts. I think you will marvel at how quickly you can make this candy. The key is to work quickly & have everything ready.
