The following Peanut Brittle recipe is from SurvivalBlog reader Rick in Germany. Rick says: “I’ve made this twice and I will never buy this in the store ever again.”

Ingredients
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of corn syrup (I use rice syrup to avoid GMOs).
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  • 1 cup of water.
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda.
  • 1 teaspoon of salt.
  • 1 tablespoon of butter.
  • 2 cups of roasted peanuts.  I use salted roasted peanuts
Required Gear
  • A large sauce pan.
  • Cookie sheet measuring at least 9”x13”, with a lip on all four sides.  You’ll want one that is a little bigger unless you want 3/8” thick peanut brittle.
  • Candy thermometer.
Directions

1) Butter up your cookie sheet, using the butter.

2) In a large sauce pan, put on mid-heat, and mix the sugar and water until the sugar is completely dissolved.

3) Add rice/corn syrup.  Mix until it looks like one kind of liquid. Heat to a boil. Constantly stir the mixture. On a scale of 1 to 9, start with 7. Keep stiring the mixture! Insert the candy thermometer, clipped to the pan. Be sure to lower the heat once it’s boiling, but keep it boiling until you reach the hard crack stage of 300°F.

4) You can go a little beyond hard crack stage, but turn the heat off. You must be quick about the following steps!  Add the vanilla.  Stir the mixture.  Add the salt.  Stir the mixture.  Add the baking soda (this will cause a neat reaction). Stir the mixture. Move fast as the brittle is now starting to harden.

5) Add the peanuts and stir them in well, but fast!

6) Pour the mixture onto the buttered-up cookie sheet.  Spread it evenly.  Let it cool.

SERVING

Once the brittle has cooled and completely hardened, you may break it up into palm-sized chunks, to serve.
