    Kozy Kitchen's Note:

    This candie reminds me of the middle of a Butterfinger.It is not as "brittle" as the traditional peanut brittle and is a wonderful change!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preparations: Butter a cookie sheet;place in warm oven to keep warm-to hot. Combine the baking soda and vanilla in a small cup and set aside.(this keeps the soda from brown flaking in your syrup).
    2. 2
      Combine sugar,water and corn syrup in heavy saucepan.
    3. 3
      Bring mixture to full boil over high heat, stirring until mixture appears clear.
    4. 4
      Cook to hard crack stage- 290 degrees.(No thermometer? Fill a cup with cold water and drip a drop of the syrup into water. Feel the drop at the bottom of the cup -- if it's hard and brittle, it's ready!
    5. 5
      Meanwhile, put the measured peanut butter and peanuts in a medium size bowl and microwave on defrost or half power to warm .
    6. 6
      When the syrup hits 290 remove from heat and add vanilla,soda and the warmed peanut butter mixture. Combine and stir quickly.
    7. 7
      Working quickly, pour onto a very warm - hot buttered cookie sheet; spread with large spoons or forks.
    8. 8
      Cool; break into pieces.

      This is the best peanut brittle. I only used one cup of peanut butter because that is all I had and it was plenty. I used 1 1/2 cups of sugar with perfect results. Also, there is no need to line the cookie sheet with anything - just butter it as directed. There should be no problem with sticking.

      Yes, this is definitely Butterfinger brittle -- great stuff, much better than the usual hard stuff. Just don't do what I did, though: line the pan with wax paper! The wax paper melted to the brittle and I couldn't get all of it off. We just ate it anyway... Next time I'm going to try parchment paper since supposedly it withstands higher temps. (And there WILL be a next time, for sure... DH really loved this stuff!)

      This is amazing candy! So good. Mine came out quite crumbly, but after I broke it into pieces I just scooped up all the crumbs into a bowl and left them on the counter and they magically disappeared! Next time I might make it on 2 cookie sheets because even using my biggest one, it still was quite thick, which I think may have contributed to the crumbling. Only change I made was to use dark corn syrup because thats all I had on hand. Very delicious...thank you!
