    Karrie Massotti's Note:

    If you like a little hot with your sweet than this is the candy for you. Peanut brittle with a little spice added and all made in microwave so super simple.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    lb

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/4 cups dry roasted salted peanuts (Note, I have used unsalted and still tastes good but lower in sodium)
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
    • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
    • 1 teaspoon butter
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Coat a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
    2. 2
      Also spray a metal spatula (and yes it matters, goo will stick to all others and make it impossible to work with)
    3. 3
      set aside cookie sheet and spatula.
    4. 4
      In a large bowl, mix the peanuts, hot pepper sauce and allspice
    5. 5
      Put sugar and corn syrup into a large glass microwavable bowl.
    6. 6
      Stir mixture - will be very thick but will change when heated.
    7. 7
      Microwave, uncovered on high for 4 minutes.
    8. 8
      stir again.
    9. 9
      add in spicy peanut mixture.
    10. 10
      stir until blended.
    11. 11
      Return to microwave and cook on high 4-5 minutes longer.
    12. 12
      Stir in butter.
    13. 13
      Microwave 45 seconds.
    14. 14
      Very quickly add in baking soda and vanilla and stir. It will foam and the color witl lighten.
    15. 15
      Immediately pour into prepared pan and spread as thin as possible with prepared spatula.
    16. 16
      Cool, break into pieces (put in bag and use hammer to smash is easiest).
