I've been making this exact recipe (found in a Pillsbury Christmas pamphlet) for about 15 years now, and it has never failed me. Hint: I put parchment paper on a cookie sheet, and keep them warm in the oven while I'm making the candy. This helps the brittle to spread thinner and more even. Update: This time I rolled the brittle between two sheets of parchment paper. This gave a very even brittle, as you can see in the picture. I'm not sure which way I like best, but it sure does taste *fantastic*.
excellent...easy...took Diana's advice about parchment paper & keeping warm in oven while making brittle..it did spread easier..very very good brittle thank you!!
Diana #2 sent this to me as part of my box of goodies for the 2008 Cookie Swap. I never knew peanut brittle could be so good. I love the texture - cruchy, but melt in your mouth at the same time. I also love that it's done in the microwave. It sounds so easy to make I'll for sure be giving it a try.
