Delicious and not overly sweet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine sugar, corn syrup and boiling water in a heavy saucepan.
  2. Bring to boil until temperature reaches 245 degrees F.
  3. Add peanuts and stir constantly until mixture reaches 300 - 330 degrees F. You will know it is ready when it is a deep caramel colour and a drop of the brittle forms a ball when dropped in ice water.
  4. Quickly remove from heat and stir in butter.
  5. Add baking soda and stir until foamy.
  6. Pour onto warmed and greased cookie sheet (this helps the brittle to spread out more easily).
