How to Make Peanut Brittle

Brazilian homemade peanut brittle is similar to the American peanut brittle recipe, except it is nuttier and more buttery.

The addition of baking soda helps to crack it nicely even when it is made in hot and humid weather.

Ingredients

Instructions

Grease the bottom of a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray or butter. Set aside.

Place the butter, sugar, salt, and light corn syrup in a large non-stick saucepan. Cook over medium heat (large burner), stirring slowly and constantly with a wooden spoon for about 3 minutes.

As soon as the butter is completely melted and the mixture reaches a pale yellow color, add the peanuts and reduce the heat to medium-low.

Cook for 13-15 minutes, stirring constantly or until caramel has thickened and peanuts stick onto each other -- as opposed to falling immediately off the lifted wooden spoon.
