Farm Bureau Peanut Brittle
Golden, crunchy peanut brittle is a special treat and makes a great gift.
Recipe Ingredients:2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
2 cups chopped peanuts
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons baking soda
- Boil sugar, corn syrup and water until syrup forms a thin thread when dropped into cold water. Stir in chopped peanuts and cook until light amber (a darker color means the peanuts have overcooked). Remove from heat and stir in butter. When butter is completely melted, add baking soda, stirring quickly.
- While still hot, pour into a lightly greased baking sheet; do not touch after pouring into the pan.
- Cool completely; break candy into serving sizes.
Makes about 2 pounds candy.
