Peanut Brittle

Peanut Brittle is something that I love- that my gramma used to always make. We had some peanuts over the Christmas holiday- a Planters mix that had brittle in it, and it made me want some. This recipe is one that my brother found, I’m not sure if it was online or if it came out of my grandmother’s recipe book. But either way, they’re great.


1 Cup Water
1 Cup Corn Syrup
2 Cups Sugar
2 Cups Raw Peanuts
1 Tsp Baking Soda


1. Add sugar/water/syrup to pot. On medium heat, cook until the temperature reaches 250 degrees.
2. Add raw peanuts, cook until the syrup turns light brown (stir regularly to avoid scorching)
3. Remove from heat. Add baking soda and stir.
4. Spread onto greased pan.
5. Allow candy to cool. After cooling, break into large bowl. After all of the candy is broken, use 1 to 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar to bowl and toss candy in it.

All in all, it was definitely a very fun and very productive day!
