We love candies for Christmas way more than cookies, so we especially love making candy making this time of year. English Toffee is my favorite candy but homemade peanut brittle is my 2nd favorite and to be honest, it’s almost tied for #1! This peanut brittle is so simple to make. It may seem complicated but once you get it down, you will make it every year!
Homemade Peanut Brittle Recipe
3/4 cup corn syrup
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup hot water
2 cups raw peanuts
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
Grease 2 jelly roll pans. In a saucepan, add corn syrup, sugar, and water. Bring to a boil and cook to a hard ball stage, 260 degrees. Add peanuts and cook to hard crack at 290 degrees. Add baking soda and salt. Stir well, pour into pans and spread thin. Cool quickly. I usually make this for Christmas and I don’t have room left in my refrigerator so I just set it outside in the snow for a few minutes until it has cooled. Makes 3-4 dozen pieces.
