Peanut Brittle Bites


This is one of our family’s Christmas traditions.  Grandma was an excellent cook and we decided to keep this tradition alive.

Peanut Brittle:

2 1/2 cups peanuts, we use honey roasted.                                                     1 cup corn syrup.                                    Sugar.                                                        1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda.               Candy thermometer.                           2 medium sized baking sheets

In a 4 quart (or more) saucepan over medium high heat to boil. Lower heat to medium low and heat Corn Syrup and Sugar to 275 degrees (about 30 minutes).  

Add peanuts and heat to 295 degrees on the candy thermometer.  Remove from heat, add baking soda, stir and IMMEDIATELY pour onto baking sheets.  Allow to cool completely, break into bites.

Makes a great Christmas gift in Christmas tins.  No wrapping,  just use some wax paper to line the tin.

  1. Now there’s a temptation I’ll bet I can’t resist for long. I just can’t find a really decent peanut brittle around here any more. If I should get up enough courage to put on an apron and attempt this for myself, I’ll be sure to let you know how it turns out. You all have a Happy New Year now.
