Peanut Brittle

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1/8 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups peanuts

Combine sugars, corn syrup, and water in a saucepan.  Cook, stirring, until sugar is dissolved.   Continue to cook, without stirring, until a little of the mixture dropped into very cold water becomes very brittle.  Remove from heat.  Add salt, margarine, and baking soda, and stir to mix.  Add nuts and turn into a shallow greased pan.  Let stand for a minute or so, and then pull very thin.  When cold, break up.

  • Yields: about 1 1/2 lbs.
  • Preparation Time: 45 minutes
