Peanut Brittle

This is a fool proof Peanut Brittle recipe. Crunchy and totally yummy!

For a fun presentation idea, I just wedged it in some popcorn and peanut m and m's.

Whenever I make this it makes me nostalgic, because I had so much of it growing up. Many many sweet sticky memories with this one!

Total Time:

  • Prep time 15 mins

  • Cooling time 20 mins

  • Total time 35 mins


  • 1 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • pinch of salt

  • 2 cups roasted unsalted peanuts

  • butter for greasing tray if not using silpat mat


  1. Baking sheet

  2. Silpat mat

  3. Sugar Thermometer


  • Preheat oven to 350 and put baking tray lined with a Silpat to heat up

  • Combine sugar, water and corn syrup in a heavy bottom pan, give it a stir and start heating up

  • Add a sugar thermometer to pan

  • Brush down sides of pan with water using a pastry brush, to avoid the sugar crystalizing

  • Heat till 300 F, just shy of hard crack stage

  • Add salt, baking soda and vanilla and peanuts stir

  • Take your tray out of the oven and pour the mixture on your tray and quickly spread out with spatula or buttered palette knife

  • Let it cool at room temperature for 20 mins

  • Break into pieces

Enjoy !

Some helpful tips:

  • when you add the vanilla and baking soda to the caramel be careful because it will bubble up

  • once the mixture is ready work quickly to spread it, as it starts cooling and becoming hard
