The Tradition Continues by aglennc

The Tradition Continues

Each Christmas I make from 20 to 30 batches of peanut brittle to give to family and friends. So good!! So easy!! Each about one pound batch takes 8 1/2 minutes total in the microwave oven.
Oh yum. Recipe please. 😊

Ha! I saw this before I scrolled down to your name, Anita, and thought of YOU! Twenty to thirty batches, huh? You make a lot of people happy!

Use Pyrex (Glass) eight cup container for best results.

This mixture gets VERY HOT. Do not burn yourself! It also gets hard IMMEDIATELY after adding baking soda, so don't waste any time mixing and pouring onto well buttered cookie sheet.

Butter or margarine for greasing cookie sheets
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup white Karo corn syrup
14 teaspoon salt
1 cup dry roasted peanuts
1 teaspoon butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda

LIBERALLY grease a metal cookie sheet with butter or margarine. Stir together sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Place in 8 cup glass Pyrex measuring cup. Microwave on high 4 minutes. Stir well.

Mix in peanuts and microwave on high for 3 1/2 minutes. Mix in butter and vanilla and stir well. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir well.

Add baking soda. IMMEDIATELY STIR WELL and pour onto greased cookie sheet. Let harden for 30 minutes to an hour, break into chunks, and store in airtight container.

These are times that work on my microwave oven. They might change a bit for you. The original times I had (and had to experiment with to get the times I’ve listed above) –-

4 minutes for first microwaving, 3 to 3 1/2 minutes for second, and 1 1/2 to 2 minutes for third

Good luck with this! I make 20 to 30 batches each Christmas season for friends and friends.
