Peanut Brittle

Begin by preparing a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone mat .

Step 1

In a large non-stick pot, combine sugar and water, stirring until well mixed. Pour the corn syrup into the mixture and give it a good stir, then gently bring it to a boil over medium-low heat stirring every few minutes to ensure it doesn’t stick to the bottom. Use a candy thermometer and measure it until it reaches 250°F.

Step 2

Pour the peanuts into the mixture and carry on stirring until it reaches a temperature of 300°F.

Step 3

Take the pot off the heat and add the butter, baking soda, and vanilla. Stir until it starts to bubble and change consistency.
