- You must be exact with the temperatures.
This is my sister-in-law, Beth’s scrumptious recipe. Her brittle is addictive because of the crunch and the salty-sweet combination you get from the peanuts and the brittle.
Beth wanted me to share three musts with this recipe:
2 C sugar
1 C corn syrup
¼ C water
1 ½ C salted peanuts
1 t vanilla
2 t baking soda
Add the sugar, corn syrup, and water to a medium saucepan. Stir the mixture continually until it reaches 285°F.
Take the mixture off the heat and stir in the peanuts and butter. Put it back on the heat and stir the mixture continually until it reaches 295°F.
Take it off of the heat and stir in the vanilla and baking soda.
Pour the mixture over a buttered cookie sheet and let set. Once it’s hardened, break into pieces.
