Peanut brittle is a classic American confectionery, each bite chock-a-block with peanuts and caramelised flavour.
Super easy and tasty - 17 Nov 2016
This was so good and so easy to make. I made a few changes to mine though. I used coctail peanuts (2 cups instead of 1) and added 1 tbs of butter to the mixture when I added the peanuts. When I added the baking soda, I also added 1 tsp of vanilla. After it was cooled I covered the top (before breaking it) with a baking chocolate/peanut butter mixture. - 20 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very good brittle. I used plantars dry roasted lightly salted peanuts and it turned out fine. I will pour it onto lightly greased foil next time as the foil stuck to the back of some pieces. I didn't use a thermometer but instead followed the directions for the (dripping off the spoon and leaving hairs behind) It worked great. - 04 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
