Peanut Brittle

Peanut Brittle
From the Kitchen of Kristin Sumption (The Domestic Doozie)


  • 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda (make sure it's fresh)


  1. Tape Parchment paper down on your countertop. In a glass bowl, combine peanuts, sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Cook in microwave for 6 to 7 minutes on High (700 W); mixture should be bubbly and peanuts browned. Stir in butter and vanilla; cook 2 to 3 minutes longer.
  2. Quickly stir in baking soda, just until mixture is foamy. Pour immediately onto parchment paper. Let cool 15 minutes, or until set. Break into pieces, and store in an airtight container. *You may need to alter the cooking times based on the wattage of your microwave.
