Microwave Peanut Brittle

Recipe by: BBQGuide

Prep time:


1 C sugar
1/2 C White Corn Syrup
1 C Peanuts
1 t Butter (or up to 1 Tbsp.)
1 t Vanilla
1 t Baking Soda

Microwave Divinity:
3 C Sugar
1/2 C light Corn Syrup
2/3 C Water
1/4 t Salt
2 Egg Whites
1/4 t Vanilla
1 C Nuts, chopped

In 2 quart batter bowl, stir sugar and syrup. Microwave on high 4 minutes. Stir in peanuts. Microwave high 3 to 5 minutes, until light brown. Add butter and vanilla, blending well. Microwave on high 1 to 2 minutes more. Add baking soda and gently stir until foamy. Pour mixture onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Let cool 1/2 to 1 hour. When cool, break into small pieces and store airtight.

Note: Watch carefully to prevent scorching. May also have to add time to caramelize sugar.

Microwave Divinity:

In 3 quart bowl, or batter bowl, cook sugar and syrup and water high 12 to 13 minutes or until mixture reaches hard ball (250-268 deg F.). Add salt to egg whites and beat them on high speed until stiff. Slowly pour syrup in a thin stream into egg whites, beating constantly until mixture loses its shine and thickens. Stir in vanilla and nuts. Drop by teaspoons at once onto waxed paper. Makes about 30 pieces.

Note: Microwave safe thermometers are available in microwave appliance stores and some kitchen supply sections of department stores. They use alcohol instead of mercury and cost about $10-$16.

Bless us oh lord, for these gifts which we are about to receive, from thy bounty, through Christ our Lord. Amen. Visit Hickory Works!
