    LAURIE's Note:

    From GE Microwave cookbook, 1977. Fast and easy brittle that sure beats standing over the stove stirring! Have made this so many times I can count them all.

      I used peanuts to make peanut brittle. We love this recipe. So easy and quick to make, and the recipe was the perfect color, texture and taste. Note - use caution and pay attention to Laurie's warning about the syrup being HOT! Thanks for sharing this, I can't wait to try some with other nuts.

      Easy Peasy and delicous too. I've made one batch, and plan to make another today. I used peanuts. For my microwave, I just take one minute off of each of the cooking times and it turned out perfect! Thanks for posting!
