This was interesting to make! I had a plastic "microwave-safe" bowl melt (full of corn syrup and sugar) ... so be sure to use a glass or ceramic bowl!

Also, the serving size was WAY smaller for me. I mean... I got like... two pieces. But lots of peanuts.

I'm not sure I'd make it again, because of the huge amount of corn syrup and sugar...

But if you love peanut brittle, give it a try!


This was really good  :)>>> and brought back many memories of my childhood. Super easy and yummy, what more could you ask for.

Oh and I did not have peanuts so I used macadamia nuts. Yum!  ;D
