Holiday Peanut Brittle Recipe: A Sweet Tradition Now, let's extend the holiday cheer by creating this mouthwatering peanut brittle recipe together. It's not just about delicious treats; it's about making lasting memories that will warm your heart and home during this special time of year. So, gather your loved ones, and let's get started!
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup unsalted butter
2 cups dry roasted peanuts
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
A pinch of salt
Prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set it aside.
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, combine the granulated sugar, corn syrup, water, and butter. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture comes to a boil.
Insert a candy thermometer into the mixture and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the temperature reaches 300°F (hard crack stage). This may take about 10-15 minutes.
Once the mixture reaches the desired temperature, remove it from the heat and quickly stir in the dry roasted peanuts, vanilla extract, baking soda, and a pinch of salt. Be cautious, as the mixture will bubble up.
Immediately pour the hot peanut brittle mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Use a heatproof spatula or the back of a spoon to spread it out evenly.
Allow the peanut brittle to cool completely, which usually takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Once completely cool and hardened, break the brittle into pieces using your hands or by gently tapping it with a kitchen mallet.
Now, enjoy the sweet and nutty delight of homemade peanut brittle with your loved ones during the holiday season. It's a beloved tradition in my family, and I hope it becomes one in yours too!
