Old-Fashioned Peanut Brittle
Old-fashioned peanut brittle, made pure and simple—with butter, sugar and peanuts—just as it was in the days of yore.
Recipe Ingredients:1 pound butter
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups peanuts
- Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat.
- Place sugar in a large skillet over medium heat and add the melted butter. Stir continuously until the sugar caramelizes into a gold syrup. Quickly stir in peanuts.
- Pour onto a large buttered surface. With a big spoon, stretch and pull the candy into a thin sheet. Cool then break into pieces.
Makes about 2 dozen pieces.
