I have been making this peanut brittle more years than I care to remember. I got it years ago from a family member. One taste and I was hooked. She made hers so thin it snapped when it broke. If you want it that thin, butter 2 forks and pull the brittle out from the edges right after you pour the brittle onto the marble. Wait until it cools to break it up into pieces.
- 1½ C. sugar
- 1½ C. corn syrup
- ½ C. hot water
- 1½ C. raw peanuts
- 1½ t. baking soda
- Add sugar, corn syrup and water to a large saucepan. Cook until it threads, about 230°F.
- Add the. raw peanuts
- Cook just to under 300°F. Add the baking soda. Mixture will foam and turn color. Stir about 1 minute.
- Have ready a piece of buttered foil on a cookie sheet. (or a marble slab-buttered) Pour out quickly being very careful not to touch the candy mixture.
- It is very hot. I like it thin so I use 2 buttered forks and pull the peanut brittle from the edges to thin it some.
