My husband has a Christmas-time weakness. Peanut Brittle. Not just any peanut brittle will do. He’s picky about it.
We all know that candy can be a hard recipe to perfect. Peanut brittle included….That is until you try this Easy microwave Peanut Brittle. You canNOT ruin it!! In about 10 minutes your candy will be made and your peanut brittle lovers will be thrilled!
The 3 main ingredients: sugar, peanuts and karo syrup get cooked in the microwave for a total of 8 1/2 minutes. The ingredients when cooked will be bubbly.
After adding the final ingredients and stirring well, simply pour and spread out the candy onto a sheet of foil.
Only 15-20 minutes later you can break the candy up and eat!
This peanut brittle also makes for a great neighbor gift! You can grab some candy boxes at your local craft store (I got mine at Hobby Lobby), print out these gift box tags and tie up with some baker’s twine! You can grab the free printable below.
